DEDON DEAN Collection
DEAN – the Design Collection by Jean-Marie Massaud
THE ESSENCE OF THINGS

Jean-Marie Massaud spent two years perfecting the innovative concept and product design behind our new sling-chair collection DEAN, consisting of a lounge, as well as an armchair. DEAN combines perfection with elegance and is already on its way to becoming a timeless classic. You can see DEAN for yourself at this years’ SALONE DEL MOBILE in Milan (Hall 20, Stand E07 F10).
