The main source of inspiration for creating a chair was the conceptual design system invented by El Lissitzky under the name — PROUN — “project of approving the new” to denote an artistic theory that combines the idea of ​​a geometric plane with the laws of constructive construction of volumetric forms. The shape of the chair as a translation from the Suprematist composition into volumetric forms. The combination of geometric planes with three-dimensional objects, create dynamic structures floating into space, having neither top nor bottom, turning planes into volume and interpenetrating into each other, solve the problem of creating a plastic concept of the relationship of an object with space.

A single color combines the details of the chair, only the textures hint at the density and quality of the material - glossy metal and matte velvet. It's comfortable to sit on it. Soft part is made of special furniture foam rubber and separated in two hemispheres, and it's metal base between them. The back side of a chair is on comfy angle in 10 degrees and made og 3mm metal sheet which is safety and quite light weight at the same time.
