Armchair was developed in collaboration with the modern Polish furniture brand Artu. The replaceable soft parts allowed us to create a set of module armchairs, united by their friendly design. The name of this armchair modification is the French word which means "editor". It is inspired by the person who deliberately cuts off everything extra, leaving the core itself. Monteur became the embodiment of this craft due to its neat appearance and thorough detail consideration. It has the reading back angle according to the types of seating ergonomics of Alvar Aalto of 1931.

Bio
Levantin design is a design objects multidisciplinary studio, that was founded by brothers Sergei and Aleksandr Lvov. They had started in 2012 with scandalous experiments in refurbishment of furniture, that soon helped them to launch their own industrial designs. The approach to design might be described as Wow in your space: “we implement the brave and cosmopolitan ideas, in demand with people who look creatively at the world!”.

Other prizes
The Levantin design products were exhibited at Maison&Objet, Warsaw Home&Contract, French Design week, Barcelona Design Week, Stockholm Furniture Fair. They also have publications in many international trade journals, among them Architectural Digest, Elle Decoration, Hospitality design, Domus, Interni, Wired, CASA E JARDIM, CASA CLAUDIA.
