Set of 4 André Simard for Airborne. Metal structure and orange upholstery. Circa 1955, France. Good Vintage Condition. André Simard is a French artist born in 1926. Airborne is one of France’s most successful and influential design companies of the modernist era. Launched in 1951 by Charles Bernard (1904-1994), Airborne’s first product was the AA Chair, originally designed in 1938 by Spanish-Argentinian collective Grupo Austral (Juan Kurchan, Jorge Ferrari-Hardoy, and Antonio Bonet). Knoll had produced Grupo Austral’s original Butterfly Chair into the 1940s. The AA Chair was a bestseller, and the profits generated by its sales allowed Airborne to collaborate with the most renowned French designers and compete with the biggest French producers.
