The Bibendum Chair by Eileen Gray is a design classic, and believe it or not was originally designed in the 1920s, but still graces many of today’s many modern spaces.
Designed in 1929 by Gray, it was named after the Michelin’s mascot Bibendum Man, as it shares the same curves. Despite her great designs Eileen didn’t receive widespread recognition until she was in her nineties – but luckily for us they continue to be produced today, so we can show our appreciation belatedly.
The base of the Bibendum Chair is chromed tubular steel, and the upholstered seat is available in various fabrics and leathers from the Aram store, who own the copyright to the Eileen Gray name and products.
However at the moment SCP has one in the sale reduced from £2245 to £600 in black leather, which seems like a great bargain.
