Zeïneb Ben Huba and Bastien Marion, architects who graduated from the Marne-la-Vallée School of Architecture, created TAWLA agency in Rodez in 2015, which combines design, fabrication, installations, and exhibitions.
MATRIX is an armchair designed around the idea of the imprint, created by the interaction of two materials, one ductile and one soft. It is a steel corset compressing a velvet fleece, giving it an organic geometry. The interaction of these two antagonistic materials recalls the poetry of blown glass, the corsage on the waist or the imprint left on the body by wicker chairs.
The iconic Chesterfield sofa has established itself as a reference, MATRIX is its reinterpretation: the upholstery is turned inside out like a glove, revealing the wire mesh structure.
In May 2020, the French Mobilier National integrated the golden Matrix armchair in its collections.
