About

Space oddity designed by Thomas Dariel, Maison Dada Armchair: L100 x D91 x H90 cm Structure in solid timber and plywood • Memory foam Base and seating fully upholstered in fabric Recommended fabric • Febrik Uniform Melange Collection from Kvadrat Other fabric selection and COM option available Major Tom’s Seatings collection, designed by Thomas Dariel, includes Armchair, sofa and Ottoman and hails its name from the fictional character referenced in David Bowie’s song « Space Oddity » that depicts an astronaut which casually slips the bonds of the world to journey beyond the stars. The song’s promotional video shows Bowie as Major Tom in a space-inspired outfit designed by Pierre Cardin. With their lunar shapes and curved silhouettes, one can easily imagine the Major Tom seatings displayed inside the famed couturier’s eponymous house, « The Palais Bulles », joyous bubbling landmark of architecture for alternate life. Bowie and Cardin, two trailblazing artists who shared a lifelong fascination with the moon, two men who were disruptors in their field and whose creations are still contemporary because immune to trends. 50 years after moon landing, we are still looking at the stars.
