Details

Inside Out takes materials used in the aeronautic industry and redeploys them with elegance and understatement. Its seats are woven from the same material used to make the seat belts on Concorde – for which Andrée Putman designed the new interior layout in 1990 – and its frame is made from an aluminium alloy used in the aeronautics industry. Inside Out pushes the boundaries between the earth and the sky... between inside and out!

Andree & Olivia Putnam

The remarkable personality of Andrée Putman entered the history of design in 1979, when she decided to pay homage to the great tradition of decorators from the 1930s. In particular, she worked on re-releasing pieces by Eileen Gray and Mallet-Stevens, thereby bringing great names from the world of design back to the public arena. Very soon, her international reputation made her into the ambassador of “French” good taste.



His daughter, Olivia Putman, now head of the agency since 2007, drives the collaboration between Fermob and Andrée Putman; a collaboration which has given birth to Inside Out, a collection inspired by memories of old garden chairs that were in the Putman family home and the seats of which were composed of interwoven metal strips.
