Please, have a seat

In the beginning it was Thonet No.14. The most-sold and used chair in the world, produced so far in more than 60 million copies. Pure product of the industrial revolution, universal and prototypical in every respect, the Thonet cafè chair is above all a model chair, adaptable to any situation.

Romeo Sozzi does not hide it, the dining chair Bilou Bilou is just his personal interpretation of the cafè Thonet chair.

  • Nomen Omen

    Insolent by nature, hilarious in the name, Bilou Bilou also claims a talisman status.

    But where does the name Bilou Bilou come from? Nowhere, from a nonsense pronounced as a joke. Pure carefree fantasy.

    It is often laughing that Romeo Sozzi and his collaborators point out things.

  • Design and features

    Bilou Bilou is a dining chair created in 1999 by Romeo Sozzi. It is "the Chair" with a capital C.

    Playing with solids and voids, Bilou Bilou dresses its structure with velvet and elastic linen or nappa leather, available with legs in oak and seat in fabric and leather; materials created specifically to cover the chair soft shapes like a glove, without smudges.

    The colors are also striking in Bilou Bilou: velvets and linens with bright colors alternate in the two-color special version of the chair (front and back).

    Bilou Bilou is produced in three sizes: standard, large and kids, the small version for the little ones.
