Missix by Di Marzio Design: where opposites attract – even in design
Missix is a small armchair made of rotational moulded polythene and featuring a fully modern and clean design. And yet its soul looks back at the mysterious Minoan spirals from Santorini.
Missix’s name comes from its unique heavy-rounded, number six shape. This small armchair looks compact and monolithic together, yet its sinuous and enveloping line shows its minimal nature, enhanced by a light and soft shape. The chair is made of rotational moulded polythene. This fully recyclable material makes Missix a robust, lightweight and handy chair, which is both easy to clean and impact and weather-resistant. Missix is suitable for both residential and contract environments, in both indoor and outdoor areas.
The intuition behind Missix comes from the mysterious perfection of the Minoan spirals from Santorini, which date a thousand years earlier than the geometrical figure commonly attributed to Archimedes.
