Concept

What defines mass? When you sit in the Boson, you get a lesson in physics. Because the Boson is named after the Higgs Boson – an elementary particle that imparts mass to other particles. Bosons were discovered in the nineteen-sixties but have never been observed. And this inspired Patrick Norguet to design the Boson fauteuil.

The plastic layer has been reduced in thickness as much as possible so as to achieve a functional balance. And where the visual mass stops, the lightness of Boson begins.
