Planet is an upholstered chair inspired by the distinctive silhouette of planet Saturn. It was cretaed in 2019 by French designer Jean-Baptiste Souletie co-founder and art director of design house La Chance. The rings of the 6th planet from the solar system form a smooth ellipsis that inspired the shape of the wooden back supporting the round cushion of the chair. The Planet chair combines the poetry of celestial bodies with the cold technicity of space modules as the matte black metal structure brings a contrasting technical feel. The sturdy metal tubes are wielded and assembled by hand by the best Italian artisans. The wooden back is sculpted and bent before it is sanded to emphasize the natural grain of black stained solid ash. The upholstered seat and back ensures high level of comfort, yet Planet remains a featherweight chair (13 Lbs), chic and practical, ideal for everyday use.

La Chance gives a contemporary interpretation of the ornamental and decorative French furniture tradition rooted in the Art Deco period. La Chance works with highly qualified European artisans to offer the best quality products.
