In 2009 I stayed at the Hotel Sezz in Paris with my family to celebrate my 60ieth. Sezz was in the process of developing a new hotel in Saint Tropez. Although I noticed their eye for detail and certain fine chairs, little I knew they would go so far as to have Christophe Pillet design a whole new chair for them, produced by Emeco…A French designer and a French hotel and a US based manufacturer is a surprise;-)
Pressed chair is a pressed aluminium chair by Harry Thaler that comes flat and can be bent into a super-light stackable chair.
The end result is light enough to be lifted with only two fingers, but extremely strong and durable even without any external structural support. Thaler’s creation is indeed a chair that pushes the limits of minimization and material!
