India Mahdavi (see here) and La Manufacture Cogolin (see here) continues with three new colorways for its Jardin Intérieur collection, following the latest expansion of the collection with five additional color variations in 2018. The architect and interior designer shows three new pastel shades – beige, soft green and lilac – that soften her signature. The newly unveiled additions will be on display at La Manufacture Cogolin’s Paris showroom for Paris Design Week from September 7-17, 2022.

India Mahdavi’s LOOP armchair takes shape with the craftsmanship embodied in furniture that expresses the “ancestral know-how” of the manufacturer Gebrüder Thonet Vienna (see here). In this exercise, the designer has stayed true to the movement, supporting the stroke, without lifting the pencil. The collection is centered around the circlewhich defines the boundary in space and wraps itself around itself before following its path, leaving two ‘loops’ in its wake.
The undulating ‘curls’ that flank the chairs push the boundaries of their material – India Mahdavi calls for the bent beech wood to redouble its efforts and exaggerate its beauty and roundness. the LOOP chair — also available as a banquet — will also enrich the spaces of her study and Parisian showroom to showcase her creative flair during Paris Design Week.
