Artist + Designer Marc Ange Aelects Sunbrella® for Les Araigneés et Le Refuge at Art Basel

Acclaimed artist and designer Marc Ange called up luxe Sunbrella® upholstery fabric for his art installation Les Araigneés et Le Refuge during Art Basel at Miami Beach. Les Araigneés et Le Refuge, presented by Wallpaper*, combines Le Refuge, the renowned pink daybed fresh from its Milan Design Week debut, and Les Araigneés, a collection of Sunbrella-upholstered armchairs that “evoke the strange, yet elegant, shape of spiders.”

“Les Araigneés draw inspiration from the threatening behavior of the small creatures that haunted my childhood dreams, and are the reason why Le Refuge exists,” said Ange, who believes nothing can exist without its opposite.
The armchairs feature a circular seat, placed on a hemispherical base, that is suspended by a multitude of metal legs in gold, silver and copper. Ange selected Sunbrella for Les Araigneés due to the upholstery fabric’s legendary performance, which allows the armchairs to be used indoors and outdoors.

“I have always appreciated design tensions that result from unexpected combinations,” said Greg Voorhis, executive design director for Sunbrella. “Rather than limiting yourself to a specific color or theme, we agree with Marc: opposites make the best pairings. Sunbrella fabrics are luxurious and soft to the touch, and feature unmatched durability, stain resistance and cleanability.”

Art Basel at Miami Beach is the premier art show of the Americas offering a platform for distinguished artists and galleries. Enjoy Les Araigneés et Le Refuge through December 10 at the Faena Hotel Miami.
