The armchair with Beau Fixe ears Ligne Roset it takes shape from the childhood memories of the Inga Sempé designer and from the simple combination of the two main elements, the structure and a duvet.

Once the armchair with ears was defined, Beau Fixe was flanked by a footrest and a two-seater sofa, forming a collection.

The structure works like a large pincer that holds a duvet between the jaws formed by the main uprights. The clamp segments it and folds it into rectangular panels to form the armrests, the seat, the backrest and the ears. The structure usually disappears under the padding, while on the armchair with ears or on the Beau fixe sofa, it remains visible, a stretch in opaque black metal that sinks into a soft and swollen mattress, divided into symmetrical curved rectangles, "Like a spoon in an Italian meringue." This great vise that unites metal with fabric is the common thread of the collection.

The fabric that covers the Beau fixe seats is also designed by Inga Sempé:

"To counter the calm of Beau fixe collection, I wanted to combine it with a fabric that the soul and makes it characteristic. Rifacendomi the sessions consist of straight lines connected by drip curved or arched, I created a pattern that produces a succession of strokes and inserted points, sometimes related, according to an irregular rhythm. From a distance it appears to be a fabric in thick wire, a sort of tweed, but it is simply a print on canvas. It is absolutely not figurative, but can remember a bit, written in brail, or a stylized representation of grains on a stem or trees along a road. The thoroughness of the reason lets you print vivid color while keeping the discreet nature. "
