Unusual Soft Marble Armchair by Maurizio Galante
Maurizio Galante and Tal Lancman completed an original armchair design for Italian manufacturer Cerruti Baleri. Entitled Louis XV goes to Sparta, this chair may look stiff and uninviting, but in reality it is made of materials that ensure comfortable seating. According to the designers, the chair’s framework is composed of a plywood structure and CFC-free soft polyurethane foam, with an internal dacron cover and separate seating cushion made of polyurethane. The piece is then upholstered with an external cover made of 100% silk that is finished with a photographic print of carrara marble. Louis XV comes in three marble tattoo versions: carrara, which is currently in production, along with portasanta and grande antico. With an impressive appearance, this armchair can be placed in a minimalist contemporary living rooms, with a striking effect. Would you consider having such a chair in your home, or do you find it too extravagant?
