Andre Sornay was a brilliant French modernist furniture designer whose fabrication techniques and ideas helped shape the furniture industry as we know it today.
After the financial crash of 1929, he changed his style to feature clean, simple lines and bold geometric forms, many times using exposed nails along the edges of furniture. This process created the minimalist, modernist aesthetic that has inspired many, us included, in the years since.
Our Sornay inspired chair holds many of these attributes, comfort and form are key as well. The beautiful fabric used here is enhanced by the oak wood, with a light ceruse finish. It is primarily used as an occasional chair, or an office guest chair.
