The inspiration of peasant common sense...

In search of the trick....

Nails, screws, nuts and other glues now assemble most of our furniture. With its range the clever La Chaise Française proposes to return to a simple and classic assembly.

The mortise and tenon embedding is reinterpreted here to achieve a pure form that reflects this poetic simplicity.

A clever installation for a simple, refined and timeless design

This embedding is the signature of the clever.

  • The furniture is composed of:
  • A transparent base (pmma) 3 centimetres thick.
  • Three turned ash legs

On each foot are 2 silicone seals. These joints compress the wood inside the the seat for an effective support.

The furniture is delivered with an ash mallet. This mallet will be used to pack the conical part of the feet (just below the second seal) for optimal fixing.
