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?
The String shelf system was designed in 1949 by the swedish architect and designer Nils Strinning. Easy to assemble and reposition, this well-formed system, with its ingenious design, is stable and functional. String® is available in several formats: the classic system, plex (launched in 1953), pocket (2005) and works (2014). The SH05 Arie shelf was designed by Arik Levy in 2008 for E15. The clever design enables a multitude of seamless combinations, made possible without any obvious visual repetition. Arie functions well as a bookcase, room divider, sideboard or storage unit.
