    9 examples produced plus 3 test pieces.
    This large chair/sculpture derives from a project of the early 1970s, when Controdesign was in full swing. This new version in stainless steel differs from the original in the inclination of the legs and the seating part, now parallel to the floor, as well as in the material. These variations can also be seen in the version featuring in Nove miniature [Nine miniatures] for Short Stories, 2004.
