La Chaise Parisienne
Maison Drucker, founded in 1885 by Louis Drucker, is the oldest artisanal rattan seat factory in the world. Specializing in bistro chairs, the brand dresses the terraces of large cities with fantasy, making the object the symbol of Parisian identity. Rattan furniture: chairs, benches, confidants, armchairs, planters, deck chairs.
A living and irregular material, rattan is only worked by hand using traditional methods acquired after years of learning. Following the anatomy of a chair and its manufacturing process, the author takes us into the workshops to discover the trades: from cutting to the pause of the varnish, including sanding, tinting the knots, straightening, weaving, assembly seats of today, reissues of the last century, small pieces of furniture of tomorrow, Drucker's creations constitute a heritage that decorators all over the world have seized upon.
For private use, they work with the brand to equip verandas, winter gardens, and kitchens, among them big names in design and fashion: India Madhavi, François Champsur, Sofia Coppola, Olivia Putman. Recognizable thanks to its golden and engraved plate, discreetly sealed on its frame, the Drucker chair is the image of Parisian elegance: unique and timeless
