When checking my post about the Algon Chair at Arflex I noted Lucca Nichetto also works with several other manufaturers and Petite Friture catched my eye as a strange sort of name for a furniture brand, but it is a furniture brand already for 10 years.

About the Fromme Chair:

This design was inspired by the personal story of Tom Chung. An experienced cyclist, he used to climb Fromme Mountain outside of Vancouver and was fascinated by the technical performance of his bike. He sought to rediscover the efficiency that the latter brought him to reinvent the most common object and yet the greatest challenge for a designer: a design chair.
