Jaime Bouzaglo has designed the Elizabetha chair for Capdell. On this occasion, the firm has launched a two-seat settee version, baptised with the name Les Amoureux. This was the idea of Bouzaglo himself, as he explains,
Les Amoureux brings to mind two lovers, holding each other around the waist, giving the spirit of both protection and affection.
This most romantic version of Elizabetha has become the centre of everyone’s attention. The asymmetric backrest, (two backrest sizes with two possibilities: one upholstered and the other free) means that this item is one the season’s most original, both for decorating homes and contract areas.
+ About Jaime Bouzaglo, the designer
Born in Alcazar (Spanish Morocco) and educated in Barcelona. Since his youth, Bouzaglo has displayed a natural talent for design. In 1973, at the age of just 14, he was already at work at his uncle’s architecture studio. He studied with Jean-François Zevaco, the well-known French architect. He developed a rigorous approach to his design work and there is a deep sensitivity which is reflected in his current creations. In 1998 he founded Crear, a company specialising in design, which now has clients all over the world. Some years later, Nino Cerruti commissioned the creation of boutique in Europe. Since then, things have picked up speed. He became the exclusive designer of the “Cerruti 1881” boutiques in Paris and flew on to create 17 more boutiques in Kobe, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Kuala Lumpur, Dusseldorf, Paris, Oporto, London, Beijing, Madrid, Singapore and Toronto. He also went on to design Nino Cerruti stores in Tokyo, Hiroshima, New York and the Giorgio Emporio boutique in Toronto. Passionate about design, Bouzaglo creates commercial concepts which are easy to understand. Image, furniture, the atmosphere, as well as small accessories which go to define the space used.
