Inout benches and sofas, designed by French designer and architect Jean-Marie Massaud are an elegant and sophisticated accent with a hint of the futuristic. The sinuous, clean lines make them ideal for animating a multitude of settings: to lighten up rigorous classical contexts or reinforce a decidedly contemporary edge.
Inout by Jean-Marie Massaud includes benches and sofas available in two versions: lacquered fiberglass with a polished finish seat in orange, red, blue, white, black; seat with moulded polyurethane foam padding and fixed cover in the colours and leathers in the collection. For both versions, the base is made of satined stainless steel.
Architect, designer and inventor, Jean-Marie Massaud seeks to only create designs that question established expectations and subvert trends and preconceptions.
Born in Toulouse, France in 1966, he graduated from the École Nationale Supérieur de Création Industrielle - Les Ateliers, Paris in 1990.
He founded Studio Massaud in 2000 with Daniel Pouzet and His approach is centred on the search for a pure aesthetic, where the individuals’ needs are always paramount.
To date, he has worked for prestigious companies such as, Offecct, Cappellini, Poltrona Frau and Cassina, and luxury brands Armani, Lancôme and Baccarat. In 2000 he founded Studio Massaud with Daniel Pouzet and orientated his activity towards architectural projects alongside furniture and industrial products design.
