PORRO COLLECTION 2024 / Christophe Pillet Interview

After having worked together on iconic products such as the Nouvelle Vague chaise longue, the Jade lounge chair and the Shahnan coffee table, Porro reunites with French designer Christophe Pillet to initiate a dialogue, a confrontation and an exchange of ideas on one of the company’s key objects: the chair.

“This year for Porro I designed, I should say we designed, because it is a group work, two chairs. A chair is not a creative object, because a chair has already existed for 5,000 years with four legs, a backrest and a seat. So, it is not that we invent a chair, we made this object carry our stories and those of many, many other architects, with a new generation's view”.
