Quartz Armchair by CTRL ZAK and Davide Barzaghi
The Quartz Armchair is two in one – it has interesting looks and practical use. This piece of furniture is designed by the Greek design studio CTRL ZAK in the collaboration with Davide Barzaghi.
It’s hard to tell whether the design of the Quartz Armchair is subtle, or just the opposite- aggressive. Inspired by nature, for the making of this product the designers used the shape of the quartz crystal and ecological materials.
Consisting of three-dimensional pentagon and hexagon-shaped upholstered cushions inserted in two-dimensional beech wood frame, this armchair is suitable for small spaces, because the pillows can easily be pulled out and used as separate seats. The cushions are covered with grey-shaded ecological cloth, which, combined with such geometrical forms, makes the whole chair look like it’s ripped off a cliff.
The manufacturing of the Quartz Armchair is not very simple and each chair is a bit different than the others, therefore this interesting artifact comes in limited edition.
At first glance, due to its resemblance to big rocks, the Quartz Armchair does not look very soft and comfortable, but, considering the materials of which it’s made and production technique, it surely is. Now, the question is- Is this pleasure worth spending the $14,000 on it?
