4 Coquille / shell chairs - Michel Ducaroy 1958

SKU: 18382

A set of four shell chairs attributed to Michel Ducaroy. This design, called the 'coquille' chair translates to 'shell' due to the way that the back curves all the way around offering great support. They have recently been reupholstered with taupe velour. Note a minor variation in size between the chairs. 

Michel Ducaroy (1925-2009) was a French designer known for his innovative furniture designs. He studied sculpture at the École Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Lyon and began working with Ligne Roset in the 1950s. Ducaroy's most notable creation is the Togo sofa, introduced in 1973, which is celebrated for its unique design and comfort. He became the head of Ligne Roset’s design department, significantly influencing modern furniture design. Ducaroy's work is marked by his use of new materials and ergonomic forms.
