The Lolilla Chair Has the Aesthetic Spirit of a Spanish Dance

While the primary purpose of a sitting object is to supply a surface for relaxation and repose, the Lolilla Chair by Marcial Ahsayane has been designed with a different disposition. Its highly textured quality and marbled color aesthetic directly reference the idea of dance.

Red and white fabric have been stitched together by hand into 120 balls of ruffles, producing the visual effect of swirling Spanish pasional dresses as their wearers engage in lively flamenco movements. The entirety of the seat and backrest are completely covered in the frilly rose-like pompoms that enhance the softness and consequent comfort of the seat.

Implications - The Lolilla Chair by Marcial Ahsayane seems to recognize that seats are no longer required solely for rest. With energetic people bound to office chairs all day, more creative power can be exercised to make such furnishings more fun.
