BIRTH OF FROMME WITH PETITE FRITURE

I met Amelie at Villas Noailles in 2018. She was enthusiastic about my work so we made plans to have lunch in Paris a few days later. I gave her a copy of a book I self published which had the Fromme chair inside, and 6 months after she called me saying she wanted to edit it. It was all quite quick and natural!’

 

TOM CHUNG

The design metal chair Fromme was inspired by the personal history of its designer Tom Chung.

This devoted biker used to climb Fromme Mountain outside of Vancouver and was fascinated by the technical performance of his bike.

He sought to rediscover the comfort and flexibility that his bike brought him to reinvent the most common object and yet the greatest challenge for a designer: a designer chair.

This design metal chair is distinguished by its profiled line and ergonomic seat: the shocks absorbers placed under the seat provide flexibility and comfort to the chair.

 

FROMME, A DESIGN CHAIR IN METAL, A SUSTAINABLE AND TIMELESS COLLECTION

The design metal chair Fromme is made of aluminum, a recyclable and resistant material, covered with a powder paint that does not emit VOCs (volatile organic compounds), and has an anti-UV coating. The functionality is guaranteed for 5 years.

 

FROMME, A FUNCTIONAL COLLECTION

The design metal chairs Fromme can be used both indoors and outdoors. They are protected by a matte grained powder paint, exterior quality treated anti-UV.

The chairs are stackable for convenient, space-saving use!

 

THE FROMME FAMILY IS GROWING!

The collection is available in five colors: black, blue, coral, brown red and mint green.

At the end of 2020, Petite Friture introduced Fromme soft, a reversible upholstered version of the chair that exists in two colors: black structure with blue / black cover or black structure with ecru / black cover.

From January 2021, the collection is enriched with 3 new seats and 2 tables. These products will be in stock from May 2021.
