Quetzal armchair is like a flower with reversible flowers
Marc Venot is an industrial designer who worked for an agency specializing in perfume and spirits design. He opens a studio in 2011 and now focuses on furniture design for companies such as Normann Copenhagen, Ligne Roset, Thonet and others. Quetzal Armchair, one of his latest works for Missana, proves that the designer really belongs here.
Take a look at these 14 elegantly layered bicolour cushions, which contrast with the frame regardless of their position. Handcrafted at the Alberic factory in Valencia, Spain, they make an incredible fit where you can feel like a bee just without the hard work and business.
Designed in an elegant combination of dark gray and light yellow as well as navy blue and white, quetzal stands on modernist-looking legs. A speaker-shaped seat and individual cushions overwhelm the minimal base. But that’s just inevitable with a creative seat like this.
Quetzal’s reversible seat turns in an instant and shows a different color. The pillows overlap so well that they do not blow, no matter how you use them.
A sprecherförmiger seat is interesting for itself. It’s a little far from the traditional armchair design, but looks cozy enough to spend your evenings. And only the simple modern legs look familiar enough.
It is upholstered with Febrik’s twill, which consists of 60% wool, 20% polyamide and 20% polyester. This makes it a perfect warm winter seat, which is also easy to maintain.
The opening in the middle of the chair surprises, but not as a disadvantage for the comfort. It’s more of a way to make overlaps smoother and more comfortable. It also replaces an eye of the flower and makes the design even more organic.
