I had the honor to meet Gauthier in Solone Satellite this year. I did a presentation of his projects on the 24th of March, where I used a rendering of his Ruban chair. Today he sent me some images from the REAL one!
Always concerned about the pursuit of comfort, Gauthier Poulain designed "la chaise Ruban" (the RUBAN chair). This chair combines aesthetic and well-being with wooden back and seat designed in an organic way.
The shape effect, made in bended wood, confers to the chair a dynamic line with the curved back's unbroken movement.
