Constance Guisset | Windmills

Curated by Constance Rubini

Much of Parisian designer Constance Guisset’s work involves movement, and Windmills is no exception – a playful rotating seat on which one can sit or lie. With the motion of a wheel that operates thanks to a ball-bearing system, the structure turns softly and fluidly, its helicoid shape creates a visual illusion of a never-ending wave.

Windmills is upholstered with a palette of multi-hued fabric, and the result is reminiscent of historical colour-wheels. Constance Guisset’s idea was to celebrate the incredible range of shades in the Hallingdal collection in a light way. Her piece is intended as an enjoyable seat for use in waiting areas, or a soft playground for children.


Following graduation from the ESSEC business school, Constance Guisset decided to change course and attended the ENSCI design school. While studying there, she also worked as administrator at the Bouroullec Studio to finance her scholarship. She now has her own studio in Paris where, guided by movement, lightness and surprise, she works on stage, music, furniture and video design.
