Fontainebleau by José Lévy

For designer and artist José Lévy, the Fontainebleau collection is a very personal project seeing he designed the outdoor furniture for his own country house near Fontainebleau. “I love the natural environments here, but I am also very attracted to the vibrant city of Paris, just a one hour’s drive away.” The Fontainebleau collection consists of six individual elements: a sofa, a chair, a stool, a round table, a daybed and a side table. All are considered as small architectural compositions meeting the different functions of a living room in a garden: rest, eat, work and play; alone or with others. “I never impose a single strategy for the use of my designs. I enjoy watching others interpreting my work. I provide the letters for people to create their own words. Anyone is free to create their very own universe with the furniture.” A universe that is not strictly limited to those sunny summer days. Both the material – steel – and the colour – a deep shade of green – allow the Fontainebleau collection to stay outside, even in winter. “I love the way these items blend in with nature.” The collection was equipped with two different types of cushions to ensure optimal relaxing comfort: firm ones for the seats and softer ones to place around the back- and armrests. “It’s as if you would take your own pillow from the bed and bring it into your garden.”
