Jean Paul was an ordinary office chair which was given to me.

It wasn’t until I came across Jean Paul Gaultier’s incredible fabrics at Peter and Susan Brown in Hertford that I could see a better future for this piece of furniture.

Gaultier’s Fangio designs took my breath away and I realised it would be the perfect foil to this otherwise uninspiring chair. The combination of the vibrantly realised chrome in the printed velvet and the chrome of the chair work really well together.
