Typographic Lounge Furniture from Tabisso

TABISSO is a French design company focusing on high-end, typographic lounge furniture. Their chair line includes letters A-Z and numbers 1-9, and the coordinating floor lamps cover more than 20 punctuation marks.

These could definitely be used creatively in a huge variety of places, and I wouldn't mind some for my home (if they start making desk chair sizes, I might be the first in line). They've already created typography seating for various environments, including "law" for a law firm, "zen" for a spa, and "golf" and "tee" for golf clubs.

All of their products are made-to-order in France, and chairs can be custom upholstered with fabrics or leathers in a spectrum of colors. The wooden shell and metal footing also have a variety finishing options.

TABISSO also gives back by sponsoring basic school material for developing countries through their charity program named SpringOfEducation, and they are mindful of sustainability "with regards to materials and manufacturing – wood is certified from sustainably managed forests, manufacturing is entirely local in a strategy of regional employment and short logistic cycles."
