Astair benefits from all the expertise of Ligne Roset: a pocket-sprung suspension, the considered use of the very best high resilience foams on the market, and a studied padding which guarantees both comfort and longevity. The working of the tubular steel structure and base is of the highest quality: the base is bent into shape with no visible solder joints or screws. The armchair and its footstool may be complemented with pedestal/low tables with matching bases.

Born in 1962. A trained plastic artist, Pierre Charpin has dedicated most of his time to the design of furniture and objects since the beginning of the 1990’s.Since then his work as been just as likely to veer towards experimental projects on which he works with, amongst others, C I R V A (1998/2001) and C R A F T (2003/2005); he also designs products for prominent international manufacturers such as Alessi, Venini, Post Design, Montina, Zanotta, Ligne Roset, la Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres…
His continuous research work is made possible by his collaboration with the Galerie Kréo, Paris, with which he has been working under a worldwide exclusivity agreement since 2005, producing limited edition items.
In 2004 he won an award for his ‘Eau de Paris’ carafe in moulded glass, of which 60,000 were produced.
He was elected ‘créateur de l’année 2005’ by the salon du meuble de Paris.
Several of his pieces form part of the collections of the Fond National d’Art Contemporain, the Centre Georges Pompidou and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs de Paris.
