The seating, called Bertus, has a metal framework that has been formed from a single piece, which acts as the support for the stitched upholstered leather seat and backrest.
The upholstered elements are tilted back by the framework, making the armchair slightly reclining.
Bertus comes in three colour variations: black on black, black on white, and white on white.
Here's some more information about the designer:
One extremely successful realisation of Alain Monnens is his most recent design, the sturdy BERTUS armchair for Durlet.
The designer took great care in getting the lines of this chair exactly right, both in profile or viewed from the front and back.
What is striking is the supple lines of the metal support structure which encompasses the armchair in a single movement, from the front leg, over the armchair, to the backrest and the rear leg, and then back to the second front leg.
This structure is – as is always the case with Monnens’ designs – a functional element which also describes the graphic structure and illustrates the way in which the object “works”.
