Chaise Nicolle

Jerome Lepert nicolle chair

The timeless mid 1930’s Nicolle chair and stool designed by French craftsman Jérôme Lepert and manufactured from the company of Paul Henry Nicolle. Originally designed as a robust, ergonomic and stackable seat for industry workers, Nicolle became very popular during the 1950’s French factories and workshops.

 

These days the range is still in production by Nicolle company and they claim to apply the same steel stamping and welding techniques, as were used for the original. The iconic whale tail backrest is always removable and the seats available in 4 heights. New addition is an optional leather seat pad (last image). Comes galvanized or in any RAL color.

ARQUITECTO:MENCHU

 

A 13th century military defense tower in Spain -part of a larger fortress that has long since been destroyed, originally built by the Arab kingdom of Nazari during their rule in Spain- restored by Castillo Miras Arquitectos.

New additions to the old structure, a circular staircase -for the original entry is four meters off the ground-  and an information kiosk, both made as removable objects from cor-ten steel and placed directly onto the ground without foundations.
