The inspiration for the Solo Cello came from a jewelry showcase in a gallery in Saint Laurent, Montréal. The shape of the frame is based on a pair of earring that was on display as part of the show.
The name comes from the song Cello Suite No.1 by Johann Sebastian Bach. With its delicate shapes and elegant styling, this chair naturally evokes the beauty of a cello and the accompanying melodies that it yields.
For the suspended chair, which will be part of Les Ateliers Guyon’s next furniture collection, Félix Guyon confesses having cold sweats while successfully trying to find the perfect balance between strength and lightness, elegance, and that fine line between “art deco” and contemporary styling. The collection will include a reading chair, a dining chair, a coffee table and light fixtures.
