A 'Tissus' chair by Georges Candilis & Anja Blomstedt, made of an ash frame with aluminum angle brackets. The chair has been professionally reupholstered in our in-house atelier with an off-white canvas sling seating and backrest.

This piece is part of a larger lot of items from the Les Carrats resort in Port-Leucate, France. The resort was designed by Candilis and for the furniture he collaborated with Finnish interior architect Blomstedt in 1968. It was produced by the Sentou workshop. The furniture was designed to be cheap and easy to disassemble and transport. Georges Candilis (1913-1995) was a Greek-French architect. In 1945 he started to work for Le Corbusier, where he was involved in the building of the Unité d’Habitation in Marseille. He rose to fame with the buildings he designed with his partners Alexis Josic and Shadrach Woods. We have several other items by Candilis and Blomstedt available.
