The Bridge Chairs were originally designed by Jacques Dumond and Louis Sognot for the Exposition Internationale de l’Urbanisme et de l’Habitat in 1947. They are a rare example of Dumond's efforts with molded plywood at a time when it was barely used in France.
Jacques Dumond is considered a leader of the French modernist movement—exemplifying minimalism, functionalism, and a reductive approach towards ornamentation. Dumond’s deep knowledge of fine craftsmanship, elegant understanding of proportion, and experimentation with material are signature elements of his originality.
