Lalanne, part deux

Life Magazine, 1967 photograph of "Group of Parisians in a room with sheep shaped chairs by Francois-Xavier Lalanne"

After posting yesterday on the Ginkgo style chairs of Lalanne, we couldn’t resist posting a part deux on this incredible design duo. Above, a stunning photo of Parisians enjoying a beverage while lounging in a “flock” of the famous Lalanne sheep, published in Life Magazine 1967. (We perhaps love this photo just as much as the sheep?)

Patrons of Lalanne include Yves Saint Laurent and partner, Pierre Berge, Coco Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Reed Krakoff, Peter Marino, Jacques Grange…certainly a venerable crowd. ¬†For a great overview on this this husband-wife team, The Selvedge Yard blog does a tremendous write up, read more here! Or, check out Marc Jacob’s Paris apartment via CasaSugar, complete with Lalanne. Or, the Paul Kasmin Gallery outdoor exhibit “Les Lalanne on Park Avenue” here! New Yorkers will certainly remember those sheep which grazed Park Avenue’s grassy promenade in 2009.

    Hi,

    Do you know which issue of Life in 1967 this photo was published in? Could you email me the info if you have it please? Thanks.
