Every month, Goodmoods investigates a vintage iconic piece, the history of its creation, the underside of its manufacture. An emblematic object to be hunted on leboncoin.
Michel Ducaroy comes from a family of industrial designers of contemporary furniture, and trained at the École des Beaux-Arts de Lyon, Michel Ducaroy had all the cards in hand to mark the history of design. Promises must be delivered. In 1973, the sofa, until then fixed and conventional, changed silhouette to marry the shapes of the human body under the hands of the designer with his iconic Togo.
Crumpled, slumped, and designed close to the ground, the seat-cushion imagined for Ligne Roset became the symbol of a « wallowing » and relaxed generation. 47 years on, the charm still works and Togo embodies unequalled comfort and pleasure. Unravelling a cultissimo sofa inspired by a tube of toothpaste…
An unearned success story
"A chair designed to last longer than fashion." If today this sentence makes sense, the seat has come a long way before rolling over bumps. At the time of its creation, Togo did not thrill many people, but it was nevertheless awarded the René-Gabriel prize for "innovative and democratic furniture". Today Togo is a Ligne Roset best-seller, selling more than a million copies worldwide and is assiduously researched by buyers.
