[Luxus+ Magazine] Jacquemus reinvents Gae Aulenti’s chairs

Jacquemus launched the day before the opening of the Milan Furniture Fair a collection of lifestyle objects, the star of which is the re-edition with Exteta of the famous outdoor chair Locus Solus by Gae Aulenti.

 

After fashion, the objects…

 

The prolific Simon Porte Jacquemus is expanding its lifestyle universe with a new line of “delicate objects” and a collaboration with Italian outdoor furniture publisher Exteta in homage to the famous architect Gae Aulenti.

The highlight of this new line, sold online and in the Jacquemus boutique on Avenue Montaigne, is the revisited “re-edition” of “Locus Solus,” the first major collection of outdoor chairs ever imagined, created in 1964 by Gae Aulenti. Very comfortable, the original model had a chrome base and a red vinyl seat. In the Jacquemus X Exteta collection, the choice has been expanded to four models, two chairs, and two lounge chairs. These feature the same smooth white curved lines but are distinguished by a bright yellow and white striped or plain beige fabric.
