Jean-Marie Massaud, Designer
French architect Jean-Marie Massaud is on a quest for lightness—as it pertains to individual and collective fulfillment, economic and industrial efficiency, and the environment. In essence, he is always working to reconcile pleasure and responsibility. “I’m trying to find an honest, generous path with the idea that, somewhere between the hard economic data, there are users. People.”
Ventura Stool by Jean-Marie Massaud for Poliform features enveloping, fluid, and sensual lines that offer great comfort and maximum refinement. The slender wooden structure – available in wood or lacquered colors – conveys a sense of lightness. With its inviting padding, Ventura Stool embodies the idea of contemporary comfort.
