For the suspended chair, part of Les Ateliers Guyon’s furniture collection, Félix Guyon confesses having cold sweats while successfully trying to find the perfect balance between strength and lightness, elegance, and that elusive fine line between “art deco” and contemporary styling.

The inspiration for the Solo Cello came from a jewellery showcase in a gallery in Saint Laurent, Montreal. The shape of the frame is based on a pair of earring that were on display as part of the show. The name comes from the song Cello Suite No.1 by Johann Sebastian Bach. With its delicate shapes and elegant styling, this chair naturally evokes the beauty of a cello and the accompanying melodies.

“For any designer throughout the ages, the chair has been just as stylistically challenging as it is structurally. Often we do not realise the work that goes into the creation of the object. For me, the ultimate challenge in this domain is the suspended chair. It must be both delicate and ultra-robust, as it floats in the air. In addition, the chair is suspended in a monumental way leading to more artistic expression, simply given the space it requires,” explains designer Félix Guyon of Les Ateliers Guyon.
