Jim Chair

By Claesson Koivisto Rune for Arflex


Christened after the famous French movie by Francois Truffaut Jules & Jim are two easy chairs that combine comfort and chic. While slightly different in size (another nod the iconic cinema romance) the chairs feature intersecting rounds, which make them incredibly comfortable and accommodating.

Representing the kind of defining modern Italian style Arflex are known for, Claesson’s chairs bridge adaptability with edge. With the kind of precise architecture details and somewhat whimsical silhouette, the chairs suit many different architectural contexts where more traditional square seating typologies are less desirable. Like the film itself, Claesson’s chairs are a bona fide classic, with legs made in wood and metal, making the pieces easy to customize in myriad finishes.
