Very light (6.5 kg – 14 lbs) and therefore easy to move around – perhaps thanks to the optional handle on the back – and, for everyday practicality, its cover is fully removable.

Cabinet maker and Compagnon du Tour de France, Thibault Désombre is passionate about furniture and design and enrolled at the Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs, Paris in 1981. His first creations after graduating were for P. Parent (1983), then he went on to design the Shaker’s collection for Grange (1986), which turned out to be his first great commercial success.
Building on this dramatic debut, he went on to produce more and more contemporary designs in fields as diverse as office furniture (Macé, Addform), contracts (Soca Line), and homes (Ligne Roset, Cinna, Atlantis) and has won numerous prizes for his work. Now a lecturer, he has been consultant designer for La Redoute for 2 years, and has a generally tranquil style, which takes little heed of current trends. His creations are typified by their pure, clean lines, which he endeavours to charge with emotion and affection. His collections for Ligne Roset and Cinna such as the Pi and Finn chairs, the Mama lamp and the Bora decanter exquisitely embody this philosophy.
