Ever since another Australian Artist-Designer broke world records at a recent Sothebys Auction, there has been renewed interest in what could be possible with the “dusty” chaise using today’s technology.
The Diva is a contemporary chaise from the mind of Kostas Metaxas that is part sculpture and all comfort using a combination of 3-D and body-mapping technology. It is at home in a contemporary setting, or on display in a museum.
Two different shapes are offered — his and hers — and two different textures as well. The Helix texture can be cast from aluminum, titanium or even acrylic, and this is the first time ever that such a pattern has been attempted with such a sensual shape. The Solid chaise can be machined from panelled or solid wood, cast in metal (bronze, aluminium, titanium, steel) or acrylic, or even glass.
