This week, Prostoria launched the Kontrapunkt - an elegant minimalist armchair that easily transforms into a chaise longue in its Flagship stores in Split, Zagreb and Rijeka. With Kontrapunkt you actually get two equally valuable and supremely comfortable pieces of furniture in one product, as an ideal solution for all those who admire comfort and good design. Kontrapunkt was designed by Neisako (Neven & Sanja Kovačić) whereas a very demanding process of technical development was in the hands of Prostoria's engineering team and craftsmen. By joining two functions in a single object characterized by compact proportions and visual balance, the Kontrapukt armchair-chaise longue is an ideal space-saving solution for any interior. With this innovation, Prostoria’s new product provides an alternative to regular bulky recliners. Kontrapunkt was developed over the period of two years with the aim of achieving a harmonious transformation from one typological function into another without the use of any electrical mechanisms. This transformation is designed in such a way that the armchair turns into a chaise longue simply by raising the armrest! The name Kontrapunkt takes its origin from music and means "two opposite points". This resonates with its design as it denotes the principle of composition in which two parallel melodies merge into one harmonious whole.
Kontrapunkt is a product that reflects skills, knowledge and high technology that Prostoria has been developing for 9 years in its factory located in Hrvatsko Zagorje. Creating comfort has become the central domain of Prostoria’s expertise, so that Kontrapunkt, in addition to functionality, also provides the user with an almost hedonistic resting experience thanks to its excellent ergonomics, elasticity of construction materials and masterful manufacturing of upholstered furniture.
In addition to the current elegant version made of leather, seat and pillow filled with feathers, and the base made of plastic coated or stainless steel tubes, Prostoria plans to produce other versions of Kontrapunkt as well. Prostoria is currently developing an outdoor version of Kontrapunkt to be launched during the next year.
Our costumers can try and see Kontrapunkt all our flagship stores of in Croatia: on 3 Bauerova Street in Zagreb, 28b Poljička Street in Split and 9a Dolac in Rijeka.
