Cyborg, design Marcel Wanders
The design of the Cyborg armchair designed by Marcel Wanders is based on an industrial part consisting of the four very simple plastic legs, almost basic, deliberately “non-designed” and on an artisanal “designed” part, i.e. the backrest, which can be made of wicker, plywood or solid wood, or upholstered with covers in fine fabrics or in leather. And tomorrow it could be made of wrought iron or other materials. Therefore, a never-ending design story; it is precisely the backrest that dictates the chair’s expressive and aesthetic quality.
