Quetzal Armchair - 14 Overlapped Bicolor Pillows Creates an Amazing Visual Impact (1)

French designer Marc Venot, has created an armchair named Quetzal for Spanish furniture manufacturer Missana. Inspired by the Quetzal bird, 14 overlapped bicolor pillows manage to create an amazing visual impact and provide the product with the unique feature of being able to change the main color of the armchair in the blink of an eye.

From Missana: Quetzal armchair surprises, attracts and traps. Designed by the renowned French designer Marc Venot, who joins the The Novelties catalogue to show that an armchair can become a very visual and interactive product that can also be integrated into any space due to its color duality. With the same magical feeling and the same admiration with which we watch the Quetzal bird taking off and flying into the sky in its natural habitat in the tropical regions of South America, we watch the Quetzal armchair flying into Missana.
