It's through pieces like the Félix Guyon Hanging Chair that one is reminded of the relationship between engineering and design of all scales. Here we have a suspended seat, but it seems to harken to the beauty of utilitarian forms like that of the suspension bridge.

Les Atelier Guyon developed this highly contemporary furnishing with inspiration from a bygone era. The clean lines and abstract geometries found in the composition might remind you of the Art Deco period. A polygonal steel frame extrudes to one side to produce an effective perch, and this is spanned with a soft leather sling. The Hanging Chair is filled in with repeated wires that crisscross to produce a rhythmic aesthetic quality and offer additional support to the relaxed sitter.
