This iconic piece designed by Osvaldo Borsani offers a diverse range of seating positions through adjustment of headrest, back, leg support, foot- and armrest. Manufactured by Tecno. Italian Borsani started out producing fine cabinet furniture in his fathers business after studying in Milan, where he already had released his first steel furniture in a rationalist style. Collaboration with famous artists like Lucio Fontana, Agenore Fabbri, Arnaldo and Gio Pomodoro and the opening of his own production called Tecno in the 1950s made him a relevant position in Italian Design next to Marco Zanuso and Mario Gottardi, producing iconic pieces in system furniture and other current design fields in 1050's Italy.
