One of Ron Arad`s most iconic and recognisable early designs, it was produced in 1988 in a series of 20 and is made from polished steel - contrasting with the more roughly welded and earlier examples. From a family of designs that show the beginning of Ron Arad’s leap into more generous scales and volumes it is also a firm testimony of his transition into the digital age of production and manufacturing.
