The chair with the high lacquered wood back, as Magistretti said, stemmed from the desire to pay homage to the designer Mackintosh after seeing an exhibition on the work of the Scottish architect. The element that serves as the backrest is lightly profiled to adjust to the seated position.
''The chair is unarguably elegant in its graceful lines, almost an attempt to translate the elaborate sophistication of the Scottish master into a formal diagram of linear simplicity.'' (Pasca Vanni, 1991, Vico Magistretti - L'eleganza della ragione, Milano, Idea Books).
