The Quartz Armchair has pillows that can be removed from the chair’s body to create seating for many more people.


The Quartz Armchair, designed by CTRL ZAK and Davide Barzaghi, is a geometric seat built up of individual 3D hexagons and pentagons. When the individual shapes are popped out of the beechwood structure, they can be used as extra seating.

The $13,999 armchair combines the two-dimensional structure of the wood frame with the three-dimensional stuffing to create a uniquely voluminous chair that is both flat and has depth, depending on the angle you look at it from. It is both comforting in its wraparound aesthetic and interesting in its angular profile created by the geometric shapes. The pop-out polygons are upholstered in natural fibers and no two chairs have the same configuration of shapes.
