Bilou Bilou, un état de siège parisien
At the Rue de Bellechasse showroom in Paris, Promemoria will present eight brand new interpretations of the chair Bilou Bilou, an iconic piece from the company’s range which has been revisited by eight different French architects and designers.
Alexandra de Garidel, Bruno Borrione & Astrid Dieterlen, Elliott Barnes, Isabelle Stanislas, Pierre Yves Rochon, Patrick Gilles & Dorothée Boissier, Stephanie Coutas, Sybille de Margerie were invited by Promemoria to design their own personal vision of Bilou Bilou.
This international initiative which was held for the first time in Los Angeles in 2015, was subsequently repeated at the Promemoria showrooms in Moscow, New York and London where local designers and architects were invited to offer their own personal interpretations of the chair.
The eight French designs have, as previously, been produced by Promemoria craftsmen at the facility in Valmadrera and will be exhibited on 18th January in Paris at the Italian Culture Institute and then from the 19th to the 23rd January 2018 at the Promemoria showroom.
The great variety of designs and finishings which have been proposed show the high levels of creativity and skill of all those involved in the project, as well as the versatility of Bilou Bilou – a decisive and original chair, capable of a thousand transformations.
