The Alborz Armchair

View all 7 Photos

A sculptural chair design that re-imagines furniture as art.

Award-winning architect Alireza Razavi explores stylistic freedom and experimentatal concepts throughout his architecture, interior design, and furniture design projects. However, the Alborz Armchair perfectly embodies his approach to design. Driven by a desire to create furniture that surpasses function, he designed the armchair with a sculptural silhouette. The chair resembles an artwork thanks to eye-catching conical elements; the back leg extends vertically to create the backrest while giving the armchair an almost totemic form. Beautifully balanced, the Alborz Armchair offers stability with three cone-shaped legs and an angled seat.

Alireza Razavi drew inspiration from the work of Charles and Ray Eames, Barbara Hepworth, and Isamu Noguchi for the design, but the armchair has a distinctive style. Safe to say, it doubles as an artwork in a living space and can also easily become the centerpiece of a room. Made by Lallier 1888 from MDF, the chair features a black lacquer-painted finish with a glossy surface. The seat boasts a sculpted design to enhance comfort, while the backrest inclination allows the user to sit back and relax. Made to order, the armchair is part of a larger collection. Comprising five products, the sculptural furniture line will make its debut in 2021. Photographs© Erick Saillet.
