Pierre Folie ‘Douglas’ Lounge chairs early edition, France 1960’s
Ultra rare pair of 'Douglas' armchairs by Pierre Folie, France 1960's. This is the early model before the later 'Jacques Charpentier' production, these are produced by Manelec. Manelec was a company specializing in highend production of stainless steel furniture, and also the producer for Maria Pergay. Folie worked with Manelec in the early years. The model is slightly different and a bit more 'primitive' than the later version but above all much more beautiful; it's slightly wider and lower what makes it look so much more grounded. The chairs stand on a swivel base. Highly collectible items, French Avant Garde pur sang. The stainless steel and black leather cushions are both in very good condition.
