A new stackable seating family made entirely of painted aluminium for indoor and outdoor use. Based on the construction methods of race car bodywork from the past, the use of metal bolts and rivets makes the collection perfect for a restaurant that is part of an automotive museum complex. The challenge of the project was to make a seat completely in aluminium, without utilizing the costly deep drawing dies required for industrial-scale production. The assistance of the craftsman Emanuele Lispi, who makes the pieces entirely by hand, has been fundamental to achieve this goal.
