Product Description: Named after Michelin's mascot - Bibendum, (aka the Michelin Man), Eileen Gray created this utterly unique design in 1926.Characteristically this piece seems to offer no identifiable design lineage - except perhaps to the Michelin Man himself, and to a bedside table that she designed in the same year; Its circular top supported on a stand by a u-shaped base, share some structural similarity with the chair.
The simple roundness of Bibendum's lines are in stark contrast, to the angularity of many other Bauhaus era furniture designs. Comparing it to the Grand Confort by Le Corbusier for example, it seems to be a playful almost ostentatious response to the reserved pragmatism of her teacher's design.
