His first collection, “The chairs of lost time,” inspired by the characters of Marcel Proust, was exhibited in 2021 by Atelier Jespers in Paris. Guerrée's process carefully considers the societal implications of furniture, linking social construct with decorative arts: "The Line, the comfort, The Proportions of a chair not only suggest a way of sitting, But also a range of attitudes and possible scenarios."

DETAILS

ALBERTINE POMARE CHAIR

Anthony Guerrée read In Search of lost time in 2013, a century after the publication of Marcel Proust’s first volume, and he was touched by the timeless and universal beauty of this literary masterpiece. Proust’s gallery of colorful characters is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for many artists. Each of the book’s characters possesses a singular way of being in the world, of behaving in society

Anthony Guerrée wondered whether he could design chairs that, like fictional characters, had personality traits and could serve as allegories or incarnations. Could he give life, as it were, to his chairs? By proposing a physical position, a seat can also convey a social position. The line, the comfort, the proportions of a chair not only suggest a way of sitting, but also a range of attitudes and possible scenarios. It is with these concepts that Anthony Guerrée explores the relationship between applied art and literature. He is dedicating a chair to each of his favorite Proustian characters starting with Robert de Saint Loup and Baron de Charlus

The Pomare chair takes its name and origin from the last dynasty of Tahiti’s kings. Anthony Guerrée was inspired by this high-backed chair because it symbolizes romantic desire. This chair entered popular culture in the 70’s after it was featured in the poster of the erotic film “Emmanuelle” and evokes lightness and liberal mores

The circular back designed by Anthony Guerrée for the  «Albertine» chair is directly inspired by the bike that Albertine rides away on
