A true timeless design icon
Marcel gascoin designed the c-chair in 1947 as a response to the challenge with large families in small apartments in france after world war ii. The compact design and the slender footprint is a classic example of gascoin’s purpose of combining functionality with aesthetics. An ideal and elegant solution making room for many people around the dinner table.
The C-Chair is crafted from robust and long-lasting wood, aesthetically refined with details of veneer, French cane or hand-woven paper cord.
A fusion of industrial precision and intricate handwork
