About this vintage design furniture

Very comfortable space age "Karate" armchair by the french designer Michel Cadestin, manufactured by Airborne (France) during the 70's. This pivoting lounge chair is made of a fiberglass shell with upholstered seats. Originally upholstered with a green velvet fabric, the fabric is in used but in good condition (see the pictures). Its organically rounded and embracing form invites for a comfortable sitting. This version is fully upholstered. It is also possible to choose the color or fabric you want. We work with professional upholsterers and specialists. Please ask for the options.

Michel Cadestin (born in 1942) was chosen for the interior design of the Pompidou Center in Paris in 1976 and received throughout his career numerous design awards, notably in 1983 as designer of the year. Cadestin studied at the famous Ecole Boulle and the National School of Decorative Arts. He was awarded the René Gabriel Prize for his work. Reference : 303289
