Half a century after the design and the prototype were created by the author; Roman Modzelewski; the Vzór company launches serial production of the armchair with a bent plywood seat resting on a delicate; abstract-shaped metal frame. The designer himself in 1956 created two seat models: one made from plywood and another one from the so demanded at the time plastic material – rigid PVC. The rigid PVC model received the second prize in the Individual Furniture Pieces category at the II Polish Exhibition of Interior Design in the Zachęta National Gallery of Art in Warsaw in 1957; but even that did not help him find a manufacturer back then. Now; thanks to Vzór; the armchair has the chance to be manufactured in series; both in its plywood and plastic version.
