The Quetzal Armchair Flies into Missana

French designer Marc Venot has designed an unusual armchair for Spanish furniture company Missana. Much like the bird it’s named after, the Quetzal chair has a striking appearance that will surprise and attract you. With 14 overlapping, bicolor pillows, that are available in a variety of color combinations, the chair’s “feathers” easily change to the other color for a different look.


For the chair’s launch, the Quetzal has been upholstered with Febrik’s Twill fabrics in different, harmonious combinations. The interactive nature of the chair allows it to easily integrate into any space thanks to the dual colors. Quetzal joins The Novelties collection from Missana.
