When is a marble chair not a marble chair? When the marble is a digital print. This novel idea uses advances in printing technologies to turn beautiful yet austere marble into a sensitive and comfortable material. Using the traditional wingback form, Galante and Lancman pair two classic elements with an unexpected twist. Presented at imm cologne 2012.
