François Bauchet, who was trained at the Bourges Art School, built up his work as a designer with pieces that have a sculptural appearance. For the creation of C’est aussi une chaise (“It’s also a chair”), the artist benefited from the assistance of the VIA (Valorisation de l’Innovation dans l’Ameublement, (Development of Innovation in Furniture), a location intended to support creativity in furniture). Symbolic of the rigorous and minimal style of the designer and his interest in sculpture, this chair stands out for its compact volume, emphasized by its colour.
