Eddy, Eddy up
The Eddy armchair is dedicated to a legend of cycling and it brings to mind a time when the streets were dirt roads and cyclists were heroes.
The shapes of Eddy draw their inspiration from the cycling world, from the minimal and elemental graphic design of the fixie, the vintage bicycle. “If you think about it, many of the first prototypes in the history of design were made in cycling workshops,” explains Alain Gilles, the designer of the armchair, “because that’s where the masters of tubular metal manufacturing were, and they had the expertise required to make those objects with such essential style.” The Eddy armchair is built, using the same logic as bicycle construction, around a tubular metal frame. Even the way in which the various parts of the frame are connected - using “quick release” fittings - is an obvious reference to the cycling world. The many colours in which the metal frame is available, and the countless choices among leather, eco-leather and fabric for the seat, make graphic play possible. The armrests can be embellished with side pockets which are useful for storing books and magazines or to keep remote controls within easy reach. Eddy is available with headrest (Eddy up) or without (Eddy).
