Julien Renault’s ‘Park’ chair is inspired by the classic slatted wood park bench, a basic piece of furniture that is comfortable, economical and in most cases, anonymous.
“A public bench is a quotidian object that is almost invisible.” says Renault. “It is present wherever we are, in urban landscapes or in nature. By using this typology as a starting point for a wooden chair, my intention was to design a chair with an eye to a feasible mass production. The chair has a light and transparent structure and draws the outline of a recognisable object for everyone.”
