Part of the Cosmic collection inspired on the cars around 1959. The angle of the legs resembles a rising rocket, and the upholstered surface seems to float upon four metal cylinders that supports it, providing the illusion of an airplane wing. The collection expresses modernism and the spatial idealism present in the early 60's, with a modern and renovated twist that provides a contrast to the upholstery which makes it suitable in almost any contemporary style.
