Marie-Sophie is a comfortable chair made from simple and raw materials, with a design that emphasises craft skills. The steel trellis forms a structure which is covered with leather, creating a rich contrast. The base of the structure that looks complex at the first sight is actually creating a variable geometry depending on the angle of view. This gives an illusion of volume which is in fact generated by the empty spaces of the structure. Thanks to its natural suppleness and flexibility, the leather suits the curved steel to create the seat and back of the chair.
