Seating: JANUS et Cie: Fibonacci CollectionMichael Gabellini and Kimberly Sheppard, founders of New York–based Gabellini Sheppard Associates, an architecture firm known for its interiors for high-end fashion labels and museums, have designed their first furniture collection for JANUS et Cie.
The Fibonacci Collection comprises a mix of natural and manmade materials and celebrates the curve. Six seating options, made of hand-woven rattan and polished stainless steel, accommodate all forms of repose. The Ava lounge chair and a dining version cradle the sitter in a one-piece, wafer-shaped seat. The unusual, eye-catching Anda lounge chair features wingtips that cover the front legs and extend toward the ground. Circular in form, the Alba lounge chair hovers atop a three-legged frame. Other lounges in the collection include the asymmetrical Avanda Recamier, which stretches 74.5 inches wide and has a sloping, high curved back, and the Vantana chaise, which comfortably seats two. Many of the Fibonacci Collection pieces are also available for exterior use in versions made with JANUSfiber, which closely resembles the hand-woven rattan, and powder-coated galvanized steel frames.
Supplementing the collection are two tables, the Fondo and the Landa. The Fondo dining table has a circular glass top that rests on a white conical base formed from stacked bands of glass-reinforced concrete. The Fondo is also available as a side table. Providing a contrast to the curved forms, the collection’s singular rectilinear offering is the Landa dining table, which features a rectangular top resting on a geometric, open base made of polished stainless steel. janusetcie.com
