Frame of chromium-plated steel tubing. Seat of beech wood frame with rubber webbing. Upholstery: polyurethane with polyester filling. Cover in fabric or leather.

Bibendum is a one of a kind. Nowhere in the history of design will one find an armchair that compares to this. It is captivatingly harmonious despite its size and unites a majestic impressiveness with charm and esprit like no other leather armchair. Eileen Gray underscored the character of her endearing parlour lion with twinkling irony, she named it after the Michelin man, whose form this armchair calls to mind.
