building the obscure

fabric chairClicking around this morning I found this strange concoction of a chair. Listed as a 1970s armless fabric and foam chair by Claude Prevost, designed for Espace Cardin and no other info. Google has left me dry with more info, no notes on a designer named Claude Prevost and no interior photos on such Espace Cardin. The only hint for better for worst is the chair’s strange formal relationship to that oh so strange Cardin logo from the 70’s. Good from bad? Well it is a bit refreshing to find someone that does not have a huge Google profile.

    There is an Espace Pierre Cardin in Paris, it is a huge theatre. You canlearn all about it here: be sure to click the photos tab and go through the photos to see the theatres. 1à3 avenue Gabriel 75008 PARIS

    Pierre Cardin has a museum they call Espace Cardin on their website at, and you can see the events they hold if you click the “art and spectacle” tab. This chair may be in the “past, present, future” exhibit that is going on there right now I think. The location is 33 boulevard victor hugo. 93 400 St. Oeun. Their email is

    If you click the mode and design tab on their website they have some other chairs (chaises), although not this one. I think they only have the ones they are currently selling. This may be a precursor?
