Bibendum Armchair

Eileen Gray, 1926

Bibendum is one of a kind. Nowhere in the history of design will one find an armchair that compares to this. It is captivatingly harmonious despite its size and unites a majestic impressiveness with charm and esprit like no other leather armchair. Eileen Gray underscored the character of her endearing parior lion with sly irony; she named it after the Michelin man, whose form this armchair
calls to mind.

 
 

Inspiration from advertising: Eileen Gray was inspired by the Michelin Man ‘Bibendum’ for her armchair.

DESIGNER

Eileen Gray

Eileen Gray’s achievement in design and architecture is considered pioneering work of Modernism. During her lifetime, she was honoured by the London Royal Society for Arts with the title Royal Designer for Industry, and she is one of few women mentioned in the same breath as Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer. ClassiCon produces her iconic furniture designs as the sole and rightful licensee worldwide, in coordination with Aram Designs Ltd., London.
