Description

Mrs Arpel's Sofa belongs to the Tati Collection from the Editions Domeau & Pérès. Created by French cinematographer and design luminary Jacques Tati and J. Lagrange for Tati's iconic film 'My Uncle' in 1958, the limited edition series was developed in collaboration with Jacques Tati's estate “Les Films de Mon Oncle.”

Esteemed master craftsmen and design publishers Domeau & Pérès pay homage to Tati’s visionary designs and whims with a limited edition of three visually appealing and completely impractical seats. This limited series is the solely certified edition of Tati designs ever made available.

The collection has been exhibited in European museums and institutions since its 2007 unveiling in Paris with a full-scale reproduction of Mon Oncle’s Villa Arpel and was also included in the French Pavilion of the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale. The pieces belong to significant collections — both private and public — including that of Le Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.

Domeau & Pérès

Paris-based atelier Domeau & Pérès was founded in 1996 by master saddler, upholsterer and furniture makers, Bruno Domeau & Philippe Pérès – both graduates of France’s legendary craftsmanship institution Les Compagnons du Devoir.

 A long-kept secret destination for its comprehensive set of expertise and its meticulous work, the atelier has cultivated an international clientele of high expectations. Today, Domeau & Pérès' extensive portfolio encompasses bespoke projects and special commissions for clients including private collectors, established artists and discerning businesses such as Falcon Jets, Hermès, LVMH, Karl Lagerfeld, Dior, Berluti, the Bridge Club in Bridgehampton or the Royal Monceau hotel in Paris, amongst others. 

Domeau & Pérès' rare design literacy and passion combined with their obsessive pursuit of perfection has also drawn design luminaries such as Marc Newson, Martin Szekely, Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, Andrée Putman, Pharrel Williams or Pablo Reinoso to the atelier for the development of special commissions. Their longstanding relationships and collaborations with such talents has inspired the Editions Domeau & Pérès — the atelier’s signature collection of exclusive designs created for and developed by the atelier.

Today, Domeau and Pérès have built a significant catalogue of contemporary design editions that belongs to the permanent collections of museums including Le Musée des Arts Décoratifs and produced numerous design exhibitions in collaboration with public institutions including the Kaiser Wilhelm Museum Krefeld, the Jacques Tati estate ‘Les Films de mon Oncle’. In 2005, the two esteemed artisans were bestowed the honoring title of Chevaliers des Arts et des Lettres by the French government for their commitment and ongoing contribution to France’s cultural heritage.
