French furniture wizards Domeau & Pérès tap Tati's visionary film Mon Oncle for a limited-edition design collection.

From remote-controlled lawn sculptures to space-station interiors, Jacques Tati's revolutionary film, Mon Oncle, has long fascinated for its ultra-modern design. Now, almost 50 years after its silver-screen debut, fans of the cult-classic film can re-create the Tati lifestyle in their very own home.

Timed to correspond with the film's mastered re-release in France and its American debut, two teams of Tati aficionados have joined forces to produce a limited-edition range of the film's mythical furniture designs: Domeau & Pérès, one of France's finest producers of contemporary furniture, who have worked with renowned designers such as Andrée Putman and the Bouroullec brothers; and Les Films de Mon Oncle, a film-production company co-run by Tati's nephew and keeper of the family flame, Jérôme Deschamps.

"From the fabulous Arpel family home, we chose the kidney-shaped sofa, the sofa with green tubes, and Monsieur Arpel's yellow chair, because we felt that they were almost actors in their own right. The scenes they feature in could probably not have been shot without them," say Bruno Domeau and Philippe Pérès.

Without the aide of original pieces or design sketches, Domeau & Pérès based their work on film stills to reproduce the original 1958 designs, capturing the aesthetic principles of the era while maintaining the highest standards of contemporary comfort. Limited to eight pieces per design, the gorgeous, collectable icons are selling like hot cakes, so grab a slice of cinematic history before it's too late.
