DCW SL10 Surpil Chair Black 1927

DCW SL10 Surpil Chair Black 1927 – In 1927 French inventor Julien-Henri Porché started to design furniture made entirely from metal, for use in public spaces such as restaurants and cafés. The designer became famous for creating chairs that were both functional yet graceful and light. The innovative and stackable Surpil chair, a precursor in its use of modernist lines, is similar to the furniture that came out of Germany as part of the Bauhaus movement.


The SURPIL story, and that of the « Stackable Furniture Company » is first and foremost that of a french inventor, Julien-Henri Porché, who, starting in 1927 turned his attention to designing furniture made entirely from metal for use in public spaces (restaurant terraces, cafés and other public areas). He made his mark on French design of the period by creating chairs that were both functional and yet bestowed with a line that was graceful and light through the use of two tubes which were used to form the seat and the back.

Aluminium tubular frame in satin black. Seat in polished aluminium, in wood painted black or white, in dark stained and varnished plywood.
