BNF Chair

by Coedition

The BNF Chair is a modern and highly distinctive chair designed by Gaëlle Lauriot-Prévost and Dominique Perrault for Coedition. Designed originally for the newly refurbished Bibliothèque Nationale de France (BNF) in Paris, the chair features a wooden seat suspended in a metal frame, creating an exciting visual contrast. The BNF chair works well in living rooms, bedrooms, around dining tables, desks or in reception areas.

The BNF Chair is only available as displayed.


Gaëlle Lauriot-Prévost is the artistic director for the Dominique Perrault Architecture studio. Dominique and Gaëlle have also collaborated to the creation of many products for over 20 years.  Lately, the prolific duo have designed the BNF chair for CoEdition, commissioned by the Bibliothèque Nationale de France.

Coedition is a French furniture company with a tightly edited collection of products by well known designers including Patricia Urquiola, Shin Azumi and Michael Anastassiades. The products all share the characteristics of effortless sophistication, uncompromising quality and an unmistakable French flair. Coedition products are highly appreciated for commercial projects, notable examples include the New Eiffel Tower chair designed for the Gustave Eiffel Pavilion and the Scala collection designed for the Rivea restaurant by Alain Ducasse in Las Vegas.
