Janus et Cie Celebrates 40 Years, Reveals New Collection by Lievore Altherr

Zebra (2018) by Studio Lievore Altherr for Janus et Cie.

The occasion of Janus et Cie’s 40th anniversary—having grown from a single Los Angeles showroom to 19 flagships worldwide—proves an opportune time to look forward and back, just as the brand’s Roman namesake, double-faced god Janus, does. Pause to consider a few best-sellers, many a collaboration between founder Janice Feldman and top designers including Jorge Pensi, Orlando Diaz-Azcuy, and Paola Navone. Michael Vanderbyl’s encircling Azimuth linear club chair (2004) sports a powder-coated aluminum frame, here in White Vermouth. The Matilda lounge armchair (2005), shown in Java, features synthetic fiber handwoven over a powder-coated steel frame. Both armchairs from the iconic Amari collection (2011) sport aluminum frames, one with handwoven Janusfiber and one wittily half-woven. As for the future, the new Zebra collection, by Studio Lievore Altherr, earns its stripes. The die-cast aluminum armchair and side chair can also be specified with cushions.
