VOLTIGE designed Didier Gomez

With the model Voltige, Didier Gomez revisits the wing chair, gesturing towards a kind of contemporary archetype. From the wing chair, first seen around 1720, he retains the padded back, the cushioned seat and the low set-back armrests (to make space for the panniered skirts of the time). The armrests, which are bent into a concave curve, bring a note of softness which contrasts with the taut lines of the structure and cushion. The folded steel ‘corner’ feet succeed in ‘twisting’ the reinterpretation, which is brought to full completion by the use of quirky contemporary covering materials.

Brand Profile

A family company since 1860 when Antoine Roset opened a wood processing factory in France’s Ain province, Ligne Roset is now that country’s leading furniture exporter, with a presence in 71 countries worldwide. It is led today by the fourth generation of the Roset family – brothers Michel and Pierre and their sons Antoine and Olivier.

Ligne Roset is distinguished from other manufacturers by its tradition of close collaboration with both established and emerging designers, matching its deeply-held belief in design with investment and technical innovation. The past 40 years have seen collaborations with award winning Didier Gomez, Pascal Mourgue, Peter Maly and the Bouroullec brothers, among others, resulting in complementary furniture collections and decorative accessories, lighting, rugs, textiles and occasional items.

Such design collaborations have seen Ligne Roset win many accolades including the Red Dot Design Award on a number of occasions.  The Red Dot dates back to 1955 and is one of the world’s most distinguished design awards.

All Ligne Roset products are developed at the company’s own factories in Briord, France, to ensure quality control from beginning to the end. The Ligne Roset name is stamped on each product as an external symbol of perfection.
