Luxembourg Kid Chairs By Fermob

luxembourg_kid_plastica.jpg

The original garden chairs in the Jardin du Luxembourg were designed in 1923 and made of enameled steel. In 2000, 2002, or 2004, by the invitation? authorization? laissez-faire attitude? of the French Senat, which owns the Jardin, Fermob began manufacturing Frederic Sofia's "reinterpretation" of the chairs in powder-coated aluminum.

Now it seems that the rather awesome kid-sized version of Sofia's chair, the Luxembourg Kid, has reached America's shores. Or at least the shores of Silverlake; I saw them first on the website of OG Silverlake design shop Plastica.
