This 3-seater bench was designed around 1970 by Dominique Prevot and Jean-Luc Favriau and produced by Edition France Design. That’s about all we know about these benches and their designers (and that there are different spellings of their names.) The benches came in various versions (2-, 3-, 4-seater, in yellow, orange, a spooky pea green and thrombose-stocking-colored). Today it can be found in every good design museum, from the ADAM in Brussels to the Vitra Design Museum.
What we do know is that in the wild 60s and 70s there was no stopping the design. Shapes and colours literally exploded. Especially the use of bright colours in combination with plastic gave us wonderful designs like this bench or the Boomerang Desk by Maurice Calka (that achieved wordwide fame through Flat Eric’s performance on a green „Boomerang“: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmsbP13xu6k.)
