A type of organic design is achieved with the Bois Mou Chairs that actually requires the artificial manipulation of a natural material. Gorgeous planks of timber were treated to pressure to create curves and inflections that resemble the wave-like patterns you find in nature.

Jules Levasseur explores the possibilities of bentwood in a series of assorted objects that includes loungers and recliners that mold to meet ergonomic standards. While the material is hard itself, the user can experience comfort when kicking back in these graceful Bois Mou Chairs.

To give the pieces some extra flair, the designer supports the panels with fine metal frameworks that cross and kink and offer visual intrigue. One model has even been finished with flaring boards that fold out every which way.
