Solo Cello Chair by Félix Guyon
Updated: Jan 30
Designed by Felix Guyon of Les Ateliers Guyon , this swing chair was commissioned for the entrance hall of ALT Hotel in Halifax and Montreal. Made from steel and leather it represents the elegance of the great Art Deco hotels of the 20s in a contemporary way.
Contrary to what the name suggests the design of this chair was not initially based on a musical instrument but as the making process was being filmed this name was suggested which actually very much goes with the design concept of the chair. One could compare the swing of chair to the movement of the bow on the Cello.
