Designed by François Azambourg for Moustache, the Petite Gigue Chair is based on the marine technique called "à bouchain vif" which is used on light centreboard boats like the fireball. Manufacturing this unique product requires competences that belong both to joinery and to the shipbuilding yard. Although tripod, the Petite Gigue Chair is very stable and its stability is further enhanced by the two legs of its user, which makes the Petite Gigue a five feet chair !
