Charivari by Fermob
design / Juliette Liberman
Juliette Liberman’s original prototype for the Charivari bench featured a wooden seat, using the same steam-bending procedure traditionally employed by shipwrights to construct the ribs of boats. For Fermob, she brilliantly replaced this with a metal seat. The result is a graceful, generously proportioned bench with an astonishingly light appearance, featuring curved aluminium slats which appear to be draped like fabric over the steel frame, flexible and undulating as if in constant motion.
