Kate is an outdoor seat with a simple silhouette and made from a single material: soft sheet steel. Patrick Jouin uses these features to create a delightful, elegant, simple and welcoming armchair that is both practical and comfortable.
The first thing one notices about Patrick Jouin is his resemblance to his father, a skilled craftsman and mechanical engineer who designed industrial machines. Whenever a company needed an “off the wall” solution or a creative approach to technology, they would call on Jean-Claude Jouin. Patrick Jouin is brimming with industrial expertise, having studied both science and painting. He is equally fascinated by both medicine and design. His work focuses on both the body and the object which, in design, come together as one.
