A “pudding chair”, pleasant to sit on, and flexible in all directions, even laterally. That was the architect's intention when designing this chair. He achieved his goal without resorting to traditional upholstery, but to spiral steel, very thin and flexible, which is "dressed" with a leather or canvas cover. In 1986, Paulistano won the 1st Design MCB Award. The piece is part of the MCB Collection, and is available for viewing at the long-term exhibition at the Museu da Casa Brasileira called ‘Remains of the Atlantic Forest & MCB Collection’.
