Designed by Marcel Gascoin, 1947

不論選材還是形態,傢俬設計可算是間接地將戰爭畫面帶到眼前。Marcel Gascoin是一位積極關注參與社會運動的法國傢俬設計師,望以一己之力為社會作些貢獻。當年法國急速大量建造的小型家居,他沿用精細的木工手工藝,以機能為本創造多款大小適宜的實木傢俱。

C-Chair (1947)以堅固且有份量的實木腳支撐,並以精細輕巧的竹藤/人手編制的紙繩椅背及座位維持物料間的平衡,讓人聯想起五六十年代的舊式空間。在2020年Gascoin系列在Gubi重新投入生產,同系列的還有1953年的S-Table及1950年的 B-Table、1949年以四葉草命名的Trefle Stool。

One of Marcel Gascoin's most well-known pieces, the C-Chair Dining Chair, was designed in 1947. The chair represents not only the aesthetic and practical power of 
Gascoin's designs, but also the social conscience he strongly demonstrated through the post-war years in France.

The C-Chair was originally created out of necessity to fit in to the new sizes of homes build at the end of World War II, where Gascoin made up for the lack of space by creating simple, functional furniture. Cleverly designed with great attention to detail, the C-Chair possesses an elegant shape yet sturdy construction rooted in a simple, minimal and strong design language. Characterised by voluminous and vigorous legs juxtaposed by an inviting seat in lighter material like cane, straw or fabric, the quality of the C-Chair reveals itself through modern lines, sobriety and high-quality wooden  workmanship.
