After creating a unique purple dimension at Maison & Objet Paris where its new products were unveiled for the first time, Houtique is now officially introducing the Déjà Vu stool designed by Valencian studio Masquespacio.
Collaborating together, the stool follows Houtique’s usual colourful and fringed personality and was inspired by the "overwhelming and mysterious sensations" produced by that spooky feeling of déjà vu.
"I never trusted those stories full of mystery that some people love to tell," says Houtique. "They say that, in some specific moments, they realise they have already dreamed, lived or experienced that thing, moment or idea, but they have not, it is a brand new moment but it feels just like a repetition.
"I always thought it is poetical and beautiful to hear those stories but, of course, it could not be true. Oh, how naïve I was, look at me now… Here I am, the result of an overwhelming déjà vu, the result of a strange dream, a dream that has come true."
For those of you who love a little technical information, Déjà Vu's seat is made of particleboard with fire retardant 35 kg TEAD rubber. It has a circular base and metallic footrest covered in chrome. The 24K gold-plated metal centre tube completes the piece. Its dimensions are, specifically, 350x750cm.
