Design Olivier Mourgue, 1969
Foam upholstered tubular steel frame
Made in Canada by Arconas
With its anthropomorphic form, the Bouloum was named after a childhood friend of its designer, Olivier Mourgue, who took the charismatic seat with him when he travelled... even going so far as photographing it in various situations and writing anecdotes. As comfortable as it is provocative, one simply must experience the Bouloum to fully understand it. But be warned... once experienced, you will simply have to have one of your own.... it is that comfortable. Playful and practical, Bouloum is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
