Lightness is the main theme of this chair: it is present in the seats and in the backrest, interrupted by a continuous cut that divides the chair into two equal parts, but also in the structure of the chair itself. It is made of chrome-plated tubular steel, having a radius of one centimeter and constitutes two main elements: the base on the ground, with legs joined two by two, which meet on the central point of the seat and the oval structure of the seat, developed in phase of realization in a different component and lighter than project. The structure is completed by a 15 cm long plate placed on the back, as an element of stability of the chair. The seat is available in different versions, in black fabric or in brown leather.
