DCW Surpil Chair
The history of the Surpil furniture is inseparable from a French inventor – Julien-Henri Porche who looks in 1927 into designing an entirely new metal furniture for public spaces: restaurants, cafes and public areas. The designer marks the creation of the French era by building models both functional and esthetic when other manufacturers offer models less refined. Julien-Henri Porche focuses on the problem of stacking furniture, which is indispensable for this type of furniture, which must be stored each evening for a minimum footprint.
If several industrial designers use initially stamped sheet metal for the manufacture of furniture manufactured in series for the group equipment, Julien-Henri Porche is the first to develop in France the use of steel tube in 1928.
