French Touch, designed by Juliette Mutzke-Felippelli for Joogii Layout, is an acrylic ghost chair inspired by Daft Punk, Cassius and other French home music of the ’90s.
Its asymmetrical pieces are lap-joined with steel bolts and covered with dichroic film to symbolize the musical genre’s distinctively slick, sampled sound. The transparent coating is effervescent by day, flashing shades of scorching pink, mint green and electric aqua. At night, it takes on darker tones of major red, yellow and blue — kind of like home music, if you want to get metaphorical.
Says Mutzke-Felippelli of her creation: “The chair is as vibrant and mesmerizing as the blend of uplifting disco samples and hefty filters utilized in tracks in the course of the heyday of the French house musical genre.” The chair comes with the playlist that inspired it, which you can pay attention to right here.
