"58", a chair designed by Belgian postmodernist architect Léon Stynen and now re-edited by Bulo. Referring to the year of the World Expo of 58, for all eternity a symbol of humanistic modernism. A sensuous, rigorous and universal 4 leg chair.
Léon Stynen (1899-1990) - son of a sculptor and decorative artist - studied architecture at the departement of architecture in Antwerpen Academy. The theoretical basis of Stynen's work is no doubt in keeping with Le Corbusier ideas. Stynen's oeuvre is wide-ranging and multi-faceted. The casinos built for Knokke and Chaudfontaine (1928) reflect his predilection for the new aesthetics of modernism, which at the time were not yet mainstream. The Royal Conservatory of Music in Antwerp and the Singel International Art Center is one of Stynen's last achievements.
