Bergère, L'Aviation, 1922–25
As with many older French manufactories, designers at the helm of the Gobelins tapestry looms wished to update their traditional lines after the First World War. Robert Bonfils, later one of the organizers of the 1925 Paris Exposition, designed this chair in a modern take on traditional style. Its tapestry upholstery celebrated the end of hostilities, with contemporary machinery depicted in the design.
