He remembers having spent his childhood under his father's drawing tables, passing hours stitching, cutting, gluing and grinding, disassembling bicycles, motorbikes and other objects. Endless hours, an entire life spent dismantling and reassembling anything that fell into his hands, reconstructing his surrounding world. He continues to shake the traditions and culture of the world's major cities, with the interior design of the restaurant at Hong Kong's Peninsula Hotel (1994), the Teatron in Mexico (1995), the Delano Hotel a Miami (1995), the Modrian in Los Angeles (1996), the Asia de Cuba restaurant in New York (1997), as well as an entire series of ongoing projects in London and elsewhere. His skill lies in being able to transform instantly the object of the commission into a place filled with charm, pleasure and encounters. He tirelessly modifies everyday life, exalting the deepest roots of existence in his changes. His increasing fascination with life has now led him to create clothes, underwear, footwear, glasses, food, and always with the conviction that his design respects nature and the future of humankind. In the exhibits of museums all around the world, in Paris, New York, Munich, London, Chicago, Kyoto and Barcelona, his work is considered to be that of a master. He has received numerous prizes and awards: designer of the year, the Oscar de luminaire (1980), the title of Officier des Artes et des Lettres (1985), Compasso d'Oro ADI (2001), Show Boats in Munich (2003), and many others.

Fantastic iconic modern chair. Has become the conversation piece of the neighborhood. Looks great in my outdoor setting.
Lisa Cowley from Florida
We first sat in this chair in Mexico. It was comfortable even without a cushion. The finish (black) is really quite pretty. We are using it outside. The bold look is impressive. This is a true winner.

I BOUGHT FOUR OF THESE FOR MY GARDEN PATIO AREA. THEY ARE COMFORTABLE, EXTREMELY DURABLE AND SUPER EASY TO CLEAN, JUST USE A CUSHION AND YOU HAVE YEARS OF USE. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE. I FIRST SAME THEM AT A CITY FUNCTION AND KNEW THEY HAD TO BE DURABLE. THANKS! NIKKI
Don't buy, common problem in mold design
David Keith from Arlington, VA
This is an awful product. Something I would not expect from such a brand. The seats and sofas ordered as a set for our garden arrived with the seats separated from the sides on one set and from the back on the other. The groove created just gets worse with time. I have seen this problem reported in other reviews on All Modern (and elsewhere). I don't know if this is a bad batch or an overall design defect. Don't buy this product.
