Roger Tallon Module 400 Cockle Chairpresented by Jousse Entreprise
In 1965, film director Raoul Lévy commissioned French industrial designer Roger Tallon to design the interior of his Paris nightclub, The Garage. Tallon formed every element, from the floor tiles to the seating, around a module of 400 x 400 mm. The club became a hub of 1960s avant-garde culture, and Tallon’s Module 400 pieces became design icons that went on to appear in Jacques Deray’s 1969 thriller La Piscine, starring Romy Schneider and Alain Delon.
Germans Ermičs & Boris Berlin Black Mirrorpresented by Galerie Maria Wettergren
Black Mirror is a circular table in glass and mirror by Latvian designer Germans Ermičs and Russian-born, Denmark-based designer Boris Berlin. Through a masterful color gradation from 0%–100% black, the appearance of the table subtly shifts in response to the surrounding light and one’s point of view. The precise geometric form combined with the perfected finish makes the table both visually light and a feast for the eyes.
