Design brand Super-ette is producing architect Didier Faustino's iconic 'Love me tender' chair, a chair "so dangerous that it requires tenderness and gentleness to be handled."

Says Super-ette, "In one go Faustino summarizes his putting of bodies under tension with architecture and design through this chair that is so dangerous that it requires tenderness and gentleness to be handled."

"'Love Me Tender intends to make the body once again aware of the most banal gestures. This refined chair conceives design as a weakness. The body takes possession of a space that it leaves its mark upon. To live becomes a tiny but real attempt, a way of marking one's territory."

Super-ette's annual production is devoted to pieces which exceed the usual framework of the design market. Originally created in 2000, this new version of Love Me Tender will be available in brushed stainless steel and limited to 100 copies.
