Jean Gillon, 'Jangada' armchair and ottoman, rosewood, nylon rope, leather, Brazil, 1968

Jean Gillon a Brazilian designer from Romania had a rather original thought with creating the 'Jangada' armchair in 1968. By tightening a nylon net to the rosewood frame the leather cushions are lifted up in a rather airy way. The frame in rosewood provides stability so that the net is adjusting to the user. Extra comfort is given by the ottoman that features a leather cushion too.

Jean Gillon (1919-2007) was born in Romania where he studied at the School of Fine Arts and Architecture. In 1956 he emigrated to Brazil were he established himself as an interior architect, industrial designer and artist. In 1961 Gillon founded the Cidam Furniture Factory. Here he completed his lines of furniture and decoration objects. From 1964 he became well known in the international market.
