A lounge chair by Serge Ketoff, made in the Jean Prouvé workshop in Maxéville, France. The chair was called 'fauteuil démontable', because the chair can easily be disassembled into three parts. It is made of a thin metal frame with walnut parts and a seating and backrest with plastified cord. This piece is a very rare prototype made around 1953. In 1956, Steph Simon produced the model with a fabric seating and backrest instead of cord. Ketoff (born in Russia in 1918) worked as an engineer for Prouvé at the time of this design. A museum quality piece in an excellent condition.
