Product Story

This is due to the distinctive aesthetic of French designer, architect and engineer Jean Prouvé, who always placed an uncompromising focus on functional requirements.

  • The swivel seat is height adjustable, and the backward tilt mechanism can be adapted to the individual user's weight.
  • Paired with the generous upholstery to ensure optimum comfort.
  • Other fabrics and base colours available. To enquire please contact our in store team, or advice line: 0333 121 1915, Option 1.
