Designed by: Award winning Architect ( 1979 “Compass d’Oro” ), Interior Designer and Industrial Designer Claudio Salocchi was invited in 1980 by makers Rossi di Albizzate to design a customisable seating system taking advantage of the company’s background in saddlery to advance the design.

Sections clip together but this is not necessary.
