IVANKA launches new-generation urban elements at Design Miami
IVANKA launches its newest concrete design product family, the QTZ Concrete Edition at Design Miami between 30 Nov – 4 Dec, 2016.
After presenting the prototype of QTZ Concrete Edition at Milan Design Week in 2016 at Spazio Rossana Orlandi, the company now introduces QTZ for the transatlantic market in Miami. The QTZ Concrete Edition will be displayed at two different venues in Miami Design District during the fair which brings together the most influential collectors, gallerists, designers, curators and critics from around the world in celebration of design culture and commerce.
The QTZ collection has been designed by Alexander Lotersztain, Argentinian born Australian designer and manufactured by the urban element division of IVANKA. The shaping of the objects was born by the naturally occurring forms and crystallization process of quartz.
IVANKA has worked on the evolution and diversification of the initial strictly limited metal range to make it also available in series for various applications such as public spaces for everyone to enjoy. The development of the concrete edition resulted a 4-element modular seating collection with table and footrest accessories – including the brand new member: QTZ Lounger without headrest – robust and practical with muted design gestures, in contrast to the iconic QTZ Lounger ‘throne’.
“As a designer there is no greater satisfaction than to collaborate with a company that focuses on innovation and strives to push the boundaries of the material to new levels. I am excited to see the evolution of QTZ in concrete and showcase IVANKA's expertise in the field; creating a new contemporary urban element typology.” – Alexander Lotersztain
