Belleville is the name of the vibrant Paris neighbourhood where the designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have their studio. Visual references for the Belleville Chair can be found in the classic French bistro furnishings and lively atmosphere of this Parisian quarter. The chair’s familiar shape – even in a contemporary context – might at first be taken for granted, yet it also evokes a sense of mystery and bemusement, since the materiality, construction and fabrication of the chair only become apparent at second glance.
Belleville Chair’s identity: available in coloured polypropylene, moulded plywood veneer or with a cover in fabric, the perception of the Belleville Chair is transformed from a plastic chair to a wooden chair to an upholstered chair – and even to an armchair with forward slanting armrests.
