This new design concept created by David de Gourcuff and Aki & Arnaud Cooren’s co-designers is rich in inspiration. The “Tiss-Tiss” (2017) chair was named for its design aesthetic and mobility. The smart combo of lightweight metal pieces jigsawed for easy assembly and layered with soft fabric is pure design poetry.

The armchair is created using aluminum plates, fabric is applied over the plates on both sides and hand sewn along the edges to provide a smooth flat finish! The concept won The 2017 Liliane Bettencourt Prize for it’s ingenuity and grace.


A beautiful, simple inspiring design that should be easy to recreate at an affordable price! Keep your fingers crossed.
