At first glance this armchair looks cold and uncomfortable, but if you walk closer you will discover that it is in fact only an effect. Haute couture designer Maurizio Galante and Tal Lancman designed for the Italian design manufacturer Cerruti Baleri the elaborate Louis XV goes to Sparta marble effect armchair.
Maurizio Galante’s Louis XV goes to Sparta has the most uninviting feel, but in reality it is constructed out 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 any contemporary living room or on the terrace for a striking effect that could be considered minimal or extravagant.
