Description

In 2011, commissioned for the first Carven shop in Paris, French designer Eric Chevallier revived one of the studio’s fondest childhood memories with this sleek and elegant version of a school bench. The design was later edited for Karl Lagerfeld to include an optional backrest. The seat is made of three slats upholstered in leather or wool cloth. The optional back is also upholstered and offers a comfortable back-rest option. This collaboration between Domeau Pérès and Eric Chevalier reflects the craftsmanship excellence of the Parisian workshop and their signature elegance and whimsy.

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.
