Comfortable ‘marble’ chair carved out of… silk?

This wonderful chair looks anything but comfortable. But it is! Designers  Maurizio Galante and Tal Lancman used 100% silk for the outer material of the chair, and applying it over a polyurethane foam structure. This created the illusion of it being carved from a single piece of marble, while giving it the comfort of any great old chair. It is aptly called the Louis XV Goes to Sparta Chair
