PRODUCT STORY

Heaven

A collection that features important shapes but is elementary in the harmony of the proportions characterising it with an image of distinction and balance.

The outdoor stacking chair, stacking armchair and lounge chair features steel woven in a pattern of ever changing lines which give rise to an embracing, sensual form. The structure consists of painted tubular steel, while the seat is made of painted galvanised woven steel mesh.

The dining tables in the Heaven Collection were designed to complement the chair and armchair and have a frame which reinterprets the idea of a central supporting column. The interweaving is achieved by means of a single weaving and welding process. The tables consist of an 8mm thick tempered glass top which rests on a galvanised tubular steel structure.

Completing the Heaven collection are elegant vases, created using steel woven around a suspended internal vase and available in two sizes.

Chair, armchair and lounge chair are available in white, aluminium, and black, while the tables can be supplied with a white or aluminium frame and either a smoke grey or clear glass top. UV, weather resistant and exterior grade cushions are available for the chair, armchair and lounge chair in three colours: off-white, mid-grey & beige. Upholstered seat pad on ottoman available in two colours: off-white & mid-grey.

The Heaven range is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

THE ADVANCED COLLECTION Heaven, by Jean-Marie Massaud, is part of the EMU Advanced Collection. Its great charisma and style make Heaven a unique product. According to the designer, it is, 'a manifesto of elegance, mid-way between glamour and timeless sensuality. The airy silhouettes of the chairs, armchairs, tables and vases stage the privileges of open air life with refinement'. Steel is woven like a fabric by means of a single automated welding process, softening the volume of the objects, rendering them almost weightless.


DESIGNER

Jean-Marie Massaud

Born in Toulouse in 1966. Jean Marie Massaud is one of the most sensitive advocates of organic design, Jean-Marie Massaud seeks the perfect balance between the room and the object, thus creating objects so that they no longer appear as functional products, but rather as ceremonious sculptures dispossessed of technology and integrating themselves into his spatial concept through their beauty and emotionalism.

Jean Marie Massaud is fascinated by scientific imagery, and as a child dreamed of becoming an inventor. He graduated from ENSCI (Paris) in 1990 and began collaborating immediately with Marc Berthier. While working on urbanism issues, he discovered the intimate link between design and architecture, relating to similar implications in the creation of our environment and life experience. The key to his continued success lies in his ability to create magical designs that are full of vitality, and never ordinary.

In 2000, he founded Studio Massaud together with Daniel Pouzet, and soon became immersed in architecture as well, creating edifices for Lancme, Renault and Poltrona Frau. Other commissions include large-scale projects such as the Vulcano Stadium in Guadalajara, Mexico and the Tribeca Condominium Towers in New York. He has also worked closely with B&B Italia and Porro.

Jean Marie Massaud's inventiveness and wide-ranging enthusiasms have allowed him to cross boundaries and succeed in various design fields, from furniture design to industrial products. Companies with whom he has collaborated include Armani, Axor, Baccarat, Cappellini, Cassina and Yamaha Offshore. He has redefined the architectural brand images of Lancme and Renault and has directed large-scale projects such as: the Tanabe House (Fukuoka, Japan), a 50,000 seat stadium in Guadalajara, Mexico.
