Lightweight Missix Armchair Inspired By Ancient Spirals
April 9, 2012
Taking armchair design a step further, the Missix Armchair is inspired by the mysterious Minoan spirals from Santorini. Made out of rotational molded polythene, the modern shape of the Missix Armchair swirls around itself, composing a clean and elegant contemporary design. Resembling the shape of the number six, the armchair was given a name that would encompass its form and delicate collection of lines. Di Marzio Design created the armchair to be used both indoors and outdoors, wherever you need a compact, comfortable chair easy to move and use.
This is how the design studio describes their latest design spotted on ChicTip: “This small armchair looks compact and monolithic together, yet its sinuous and enveloping line shows its minimal nature, enhanced by a light and soft shape. This fully recyclable material makes Missix a robust, lightweight and handy chair, which is both easy to clean and impact and weather-resistant. Missix is suitable for both residential and contract environments, in both indoor and outdoor areas. The intuition behind Missix comes from the mysterious perfection of the Minoan spirals from Santorini, which date a thousand years earlier than the geometrical figure commonly attributed to Archimedes.”
