The contemporary Marfa chair combines sleek aesthetics inspired by the landscape of Marfa in Texas, with a range of base options and trendy colours to convey different stylistic outcomes.
Located in the high desert of the Trans-Pecos in far West Texas, Marfa is an arts and cultural hotspot known as an “oasis of minimalist art” amongst design aficionados. This unique destination is the inspiration behind Cappellini’s Marfa chair, which derives its aesthetics from Marfa’s iconic landscape of enchanting terrains and rounded contours.
“Simple, yet extremely refined, the Marfa armchair is characterised by clear and pure lines, resembling the mountain peaks of Texas, where Marfa is a well-known location appreciated by art and design lovers from all over the world,” says Cappellini.
Designed by the Cappellini Design Team, Marfa is distinctively contemporary in terms of form and style. The chair features an upholstered polyurethane foam shell comprising a smooth back that gently expands out to armrests with angled contours. A padded seat ensures optimal comfort while metal inserts and plywood slats contribute to the chair’s solid and sturdy structure.
Marfa’s stylistic appeal transforms accordingly when combined with fabric or leather upholstery in different colours as well as with various types of bases: four legs made of solid ash wood (stained with oak or black finish); swivelling, with four metal spokes and feet (polished chrome or matte black finish); or swivelling with five spokes and castors (with polished aluminium finish). Neutral and natural tones are available for fabric covers, while the palette for leather upholstery consists of brighter colours like shades of red, blue, and green along with off-whites, greys, and browns to fulfil even the most diverse specifications.
Thanks to its versatility, Marfa fits into almost any settings ranging from professional workspaces and home offices to hospitality and commercial applications. For example, Marfa is ideal for waiting areas and office lounges with its wide variety of design options to express a modern and inviting atmosphere. This chair also blends effortlessly with meeting facilities and work desk systems to create cosy seating landscapes within the work environment. The option to add castors also makes Marfa a flexible and mobile seating piece for multi-purpose spaces designated for town hall events, seminar sessions, and other ad hoc activities.
