Quartz is modular piece of furniture, a collaboration project between CTROL ZAK and Davide Barzaghi. With an interesting geometrical shape, this armchair was designed to pamper and offer you the most amazing relaxing experience. Quite edgy and unique, the furniture item looks a little bit surprising and rigid. It combines playful pieces of natural foam, that can be removed with ease and used as individual seatings. The armchair’s structure is very simple, all made of solid beech wood. “Quartz is a system that couples two-dimensional pentagonal and hexagonal wooden structures, which develop in three dimensions following natural crystalloid formations. The geometric volumes are covered with ecological fabrics in mixed colour variations producing an end result that resembles more a wild microhabitat than an armchair.”
At a careful look, Quartz armchair is not a sophisticated furniture piece, albeit it displays a variety of geometrical cushions that can be adjusted according to your needs and preferences. The most amazing thing is that it really looks like a nook where you can sit, enjoy a good book and forget about the world. Definitely one of those items that will make an impression on people and change the ambiance of a room, Quartz doesn’t come cheap. It has an exclusive price ($13,999) and it can be purchased from an online shop called Touch of Modern.
