In the world of French couture furniture of 1960s and 1970s, stainless steel had become that special material that suggested the spirit of the moment and the futuristic imagery of Space-Age aesthetics. The furniture created by such key designers of the period as Maria Pergay, Guy de Rougemount, and Michel Boyer was meant for the high end of the market and not for mass production. It was about visionary and exclusive objects that were technically sophisticated, and meant for spectacular, dazzling interiors. The most iconic project associated with this period was initiated in 1967 by France’s leading steel manufacturer Uginox, by approaching five designers that were asked to help stimulating interest in the use of stainless steel in interior décor. The result was revolutionary, and came to pave a new path in the Modern Movement. Here are some of the most iconic pieces created for this project.
