How to boost its offer and strengthen its brand? By design! The manufacturer The iRESISTUB has understood that and joins the designer Bastien Chapelle to breathe an elegant and airy aesthetic to the new products: a secretary and a seat. While respecting the codes of know-how in the manufacture of metal furniture, this new collaboration allows the brand to assert itself and reinvent itself thanks to the work of the designer.
Résistub-Productions is a manufacturer based in the Vendée region of France which has specialised in designing and making metal bedframes since 1953. In 2014, the company became part of a family-owned metalworking group also based in Vendée, which works in areas such as laser-cutting, welding, punching and frameworks. Over the past 10 years, a woodwork and textiles workshop has added another dimension to its expertise. Thanks to its skillsets, development teams and design office, Résistub-Productions is able to bring a tailored response to customers’ every request.
The les iRESISTUB brand came into being in 2015 when it released new home furniture collections born out of a multi-disciplinary collaboration between the company’s in-house creative, Stéphane Élineau, and other, independent designers.
The manufacturer’s long history, expertise, collections, industrial capabilities and in-house design office are all factors which have encouraged a wide range of taste-makers (including architects and interior decorators) to entrust Les iResistub with their projects.
This brand is able to create quality furniture because it listens to its customers, it is responsive and adaptable, it uses a range of flexible manufacturing techniques and its products are built to last.
Bastien Chapelle created his studio in 2017. He currently splits his time between Paris and La Rochelle, where he offers guidance to dynamic local businesses.
He is truly passionate about industrial processes, which is why it is such a joy to him to be able to combine his customers’ skills with his own minimalist style in everyday objects and furniture.
The years he has spent working alongside famous designers in Finland and France have enriched his work, as have his love of design and his collaborations with Indian artisans.
