Maserati Lounge Chair by Zanotta

Maserati Lounge Chair by Zanotta

This chair isn’t just named the Maserati chair, it’s actually a Maserati chair. Designed by Italian design firm Zanotta for the car brand Maserati, for a cool $5K you can say you own a Maserati. In your living room, that is.

Part of Maserati’s lifestyle brand and one of the initial products in their new Home and Office collection, it expresses the “made in Italy” spirit and values: a sign of style, comfort, craftsmanship and state-of-the-art materials and shapes, which never loses sight of the tradition of timeless elegance.

The lounge chair pays homage to the new Maserati Quattroporte. Ludovica and Roberto Palomba of Zanotta conceived the project by analyzing and reinterpreting the harmonious and slender lines. The look of the leather is inspired by the traditional “capitonné” technique with a modern twist, without buttons, to obtain an extremely soft and comfortable surface.

Looks comfy. I could sit cross-legged in this chair and watch a TV marathon for sure. Pass the popcorn.

The Complete Death Spray Custom Formula

I don’t know much about the enigmatic fellow behind Death Spray Custom besides the fact that his given name is David Gwyther and he’s based in London, and his morbid moniker is simply “an identity that is used to front my adventures in surface design. It is intended to be a playful riposte to an often serious world of art, design etc.” Per the same interview with CycleEXIF last year, he’s “mostly self taught,” and contrary to McLuhan, he believes that “the medium isn’t the message, the painting part is a small fraction of the process. I’d like to add I’m not a bicycle painter by any means, just an artist who likes two wheels.”

I’d known about his custom paint work for bicycles for some time, but true to his word, he comes up with wicked paint schemes for a variety of mostly speed-related objects—auto, helmets, tools, etc.—and executes them to dazzling effect. His portfolio is well worth a visit, from the Tool Box (featuring a slogan that is unprintable here) to a NASCAR-worthy Chevy Silverado and all variety of helmets and bicycle-related objets d’art.
