CHALLENGE:
The first challenge was to think on a lightweight and aesthetically material viable for making the chair. The prototype was made of iron sheet, making it unaffordable for the excess of weight (about 45kg). So the brushed aluminum was the material chosen, giving the product ease shipping and handling.. The second challenge consisted in their support: as the support plane stress without it succumb. On that account, manufacturing process includes welding to the anchorage parts.
