Technology working on behalf of functionality. The Piuro chair is light in structure but big on comfort. Transparent design and discreet table companion that appreciates company of every kind.
Simply calling the conveniently light and innovatively designed PIURO a small chair would not do it justice at all. What we are talking about here is a design object for which the designer drew his inspiration from the sun breaking through hectic clouds and churning lava flowing from Mount Etna. The result is a chair with a minimal structure, but exceptional comfort, with or without armrests, with feet in painted or chromed steel and with removable upholstery in leather or fabric.
A fast career in French design
It was in 1967 that Juan Jorion met Jean Pierre Audebert in Paris at the salon of the famous ‘Société des Artistes Décorateurs’, an organisation which groups the crème de la crème of French designers. Audebert presented a furniture collection for young children and also a range of office chairs. A close collaboration was born which contributed to the success story of JORI.
Jean-Pierre Audebert graduated from the Ecole Boulle, where he was also a professor at the beginning of his career. As an architect, he earned his stripes with interior projects for financial institutions, public buildings and schools. He also carried out several projects for the French High-Speed Train or TGV.
