Says Duchaufour-Lawrance, "This project is inspired by one of the rare places that links all the social layers of the city or village, the market. It is also the only place to directly bring together producers and consumers and continues to survive despite the movements of today's society."


"Its existence constantly reminds us of our need for communication, encounters, exchanges and simplicity. Market is inspired by the structures and wood slats that form the market stalls."


The chair is composed of a slatted wood roll with cork backing that is draped over a solid oak frame. Market will be launched by design brand Petite Friture at the Maison&Objet show in Paris on January 18, 2013.


[UPDATE] Duchaufour-Lawrance has created a"Black Market version, above, for the New York edition of Thomas Erber's cabinet de curiosités.


Originally inspired by market stalls, "the chair is dressed in black with brass offering an exclusive version of the object, allusion to New York, a cosmopolitan city, rich with its diversity" says the designer.
