Kalia Chaise-Lounge is a genuinely innovative chaise-lounge skilfully constructed into a solid wood sculpture of almost intimidating beauty. The top is created of around 50 pieces of wood—each with different and extraordinarily precise geometry. The pieces must fit together perfectly to form Kalia’s refined curvatures. The joints not only testify to the mastery of Zanat’s craftsman and engineers, but also create a leaf-like fish bone pattern on the surface of the wooden top. Another essential highlight of this sculpturesque piece are the hand-carved edges which emphasize the elegant curvature of the piece. The carving pattern, designed by Jean-Marie Massaud is inspired by the aesthetic of burnt wood. Kalia’s base is made in powder finished steel with a narrow minimalistic column and a flat rectangular base, which provides the sculptural wooden top with a levitating lightness. This is a product that makes Zanat’s craftsmen exceptionally proud of their skills. Kalia comes with two pillows, one in sculpted wood, and the other upholstered in suede. For additional comfort, an optional removable cover hand-knitted in wool can be ordered. The blanket, designed by Jean-Marie Massaud, is the result of Zanat’s collaboration with a women-only cooperative from Sarajevo, Bosnia.

“For me design is about seeing the context, discovering the stakes, be they cultural, ecological, economic…, and finding a simple solution that makes a creative synthesis of the stakes.”
