Miniature Chair La Mamma, Gaetano Pesce 1969, Vitra
La Mamma (Donna) is a miniature chair that is completely in tune with the spirit of Pop Art and Gaetano Pasce's taste for anthropomorphic forms.
The chair was designed to resemble a prehistoric figure of female fertility, with a ball attached to symbolize captivity.
The unconventional nature of the form also applies to the construction and marketing of the chair which was one of a series of six.
Together they managed to mark a radical departure from traditional upholstery production thanks to the technology developed by C&B Italia to create large foam pieces.
Red in color, this chair consists of a molded foam monoblock without any support structure, as the foam rubber is dense and independent.
The collection of miniature chairs is one of the most important classics in the history of the design world.
