The story behind the production of this chair by PERFECT DOCUMENTS is quite a singular one. Whilst flicking through the biography dedicated to Boris Vian in the BIZARRE magazine (éditions J.J. Pauvert at a bookstand in Paris), Thomas Mailaender discovered a published drawing and photo of the writer’s chair. Curious of it’s form, the two founders of PERFECT DOCUMENTS got in touch with Boris Vian’s estate without knowing that the chair was still there in the writer’s apartment. From Boris Vian’s original drawings found in the estates archive and the numerous anecdotes, they discovered that Vian had imagined a chair in the shape of a star, with a slightly elevated seat leaving room for his long legs when playing the lyra-guitar. He produced the chair by using lengths of pine wood assembled by nails and held together by hemp rope. Always enthusiastic at the idea of collaborating with innovative artists and creators, Nicole Bertolt and Patrick Vian naturally and kindly gave their agreement for the contemporary production of an object imagined 60 years ago. PERFECT DOCUMENTS therefore produced a facsimile named “Chaise Musicale” (musical-chair) in the Ateliers Antoine Daniel as an homage to the passion the artist devoted to music.
