“It especially showed that a chair doesn’t need to be made of four legs, which opened a range of possibilities for new designers.”
In 1971, it featured in the British fashion magazine Nova with a sequence of provocative shots illustrating, “How to undress in front of your husband”
In January 1995, it featured on the cover of British Vogue. The Nick Knight photograph also featured a naked Kate Moss.
It is exhibited in New York’s Museum of Modern Art, London’s Design Museum, Berlin’s German Historical Museum and Copenhagen’s Danish Museum of Art & Design.

The base is ingeniously designed to sweep back so that it extends almost to the full depth of the chair. This generous base gives the chair stability and makes is visually pleasing. The seat and backrest is designed to conform to the human body. The absence of sharp edges makes it smooth to the touch. The cantilevered design gives way slightly under the weight of the individual.

Suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Special additives retard the fading of colours due to UV radiation. However, if the chair is exposed to sunlight for prolonged periods, the colour may change over time. We recommend limited exposure to sunlight.
Polypropylene Plastic: Limit exposure to direct sunlight. Polypropylene is a hardwearing, uniformly shaped and coloured material. Special additives add colour fastness. However, exposed sunlight exposure should be limited to retain the original colour. Wash with a soft, damp, non-abrasive cloth, mild soap and water. Do not use hard woven cloths or abrasive materials. Subsequent gentle drying is recommended. For stain use a mild commercially available cleaner. Never use abrasive cleaning agents such as powders or pastes, or aggressive all-purpose cleaners like alcohol, as these may damage the surface.
