Christophe Pillet


The fundamental vision behind Christophe Pillet’s new Varilounge sofa system was to create a seating furniture series for public spaces with the softer, elegant, sensual and extremely comfortable feeling typically associated with the home. “It’s interesting that hard contract furniture usually has a very hard look, too,” says Christophe Pillet. “It’s usually not at all comfortable, much less cozy or sensual. That is a pity. What’s right for the home is actually right for every purpose. We wanted to offer domestic comfort, appearance and emotion, with a smooth softness, but inserted into a tough public context.” The world of contract interiors certainly places entirely different demands on a piece of furniture than that of the home. Varilounge is designed not to look technological, but is in fact a technologically advanced product based on a strong steel tube structure. The upholstered parts are all recyclable and can be easily replaced when needed, creating a brand new piece of furniture.
