ONYX is a three meter long sofa hand-carved from high-tech carbon and Volvic volcanic rock. That ONYX designer sofa is by Pierre Gimbergues for Peugeot Design Lab designed. The unique piece of furniture is the first of a series of extraordinary individual pieces of furniture, made to measure for external customers and adapted to their taste and personality. With this new collection, Peugeot Design Lab is breaking new ground and combining high-contrast materials. High-tech materials such as carbon, copper, fiberglass and raw materials are combined with natural materials such as lava stone, crystal stones and wood. The Peugeot Design Lab is making it clear that technical progress and nature do not have to be mutually exclusive.
ONYX designer sofa – Contrasting material connection
The Vorvic rock has filtered mineral water in Auvergne, a region in central France, for thousands of years before it is hand carved and combined with the high-tech carbon. The ONYX sofa impresses with its clean cut, a black and gray magnetic color and state-of-the-art materials.
