There’s a great reason Daft Punk’s been sitting out on a potentially lucrative tour: they literally have better places to sit.
With all his free time, Daft’s Thomas Bangalter has been photographing a line of vintage, Space Age-inspired furniture from French brand Hervet Manufacturier. It’s not an unexpected collaboration: the company has previously worked with Daft Punk’s creative studio Daft Arts, and co-founder Cedric Hervet serves as the electronic duo’s creative director.
The retro-futuristic line photographed by Bangalter includes Passager, a steel/full-grain leather armchair that looks like a space captain’s chair circa 1965, and Audiosatt, a hi-fi system made from Dos Santos rosewood veneer that’s dubbed (accurately) as an “excellent vessel for a supersonic cruise.”
According to Architectural Digest, part of the collection will be shown at JF Chen in Los Angeles on July 9th.
