La silla de hoy es ‘Pretzel chair’ del maestro George Nelson. Un dicho famoso japonés dice; el nombre se acerca al cuerpo a veces’, como esa silla se parece mucho al Pretzel, un tipo de bolillo alemán;

(Pienso que el mejor Pretzel debe ser los de Stuttgart. La parte estrecha es crujiente y la gruesa es blanda, así debe ser! )

Hm regresando al tema de la silla, la figura más llamativa es este reposabrazos combinado con el espaldar que se hace con una sola pieza. Obviamente este diseño muestra

 

 

Obviously great design with maximum softness, but the production was ceased in some years due to lack of production technology at that time, 1952. Therefore the original ones are quite rare. (Vitra re-produced 1000 pieces in 2008, as 100 years anniversary of the designer)

But I personally worried about the durability of this chair, since the design is so sensitive…. Wanna see how they build the legs! ..and I found the picture from the bottom! (not the original one, but the reproduced one by Vitra)

Hm, oh simply with screws… :)
