ROGER TALLON (1929-2011)
Chair, Wimpy model Created in 1957 Seat in black lacquered thermoformed wood, cast aluminium base Sentou edition Traces of the label of the editor 73 x 45 x 45 cm A chair by Roger Tallon TEXT: Model created for the Wimpy, 1st French Fast-Food at the request of Robert Sentou, wood industrialist. These chairs can be disassembled very quickly and therefore be delivered in boxes of two units. Easily stored, it meets the needs of the industry and is in line with the research of the time. Relatively fragile, it is now rare on the market and has become a real collector's item. Bibliography: Similar model reproduced in P. Favardin & G. Bloch - Champfort "Les décorateurs des années 60 - 70" Editions Norma - Paris 2007, pages 179 and 183 Catalog of the exhibition "Roger Tallon: Itinéraires d'un designer industriel" from October 20, 1993 to February 20, 1994 at the Centre Georges Pompidou - Editions du Centre Georges Pompidou - Paris 1993, p. 97 Exhibition: A similar model present in the collections of the Centre Pompidou and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs. QUOTE: "The goal of design is to find if not the perfect form, at least the perfectly integrated form-function. When an object succeeds in matching technology with social and cultural data, it becomes a symbol" Roger Tallon 1987
