Description

Born as a “phone stool”, and for unusual postures and occasional sessions, beyond the declared allusion to the cycling world (the color refers to that of the Giro d’Italia winner’s jersey), the object takes up the milker’s seat , the one that is “worn” by tying it at the waist, consisting of a very simple top and with a single support on the ground, the one that concludes the triad necessary for correct stability, adding to the two legs of the person who leans on it. A real bicycle saddle mounted on a steel tube supported by a heavy base with a hemispherical cap, capable of a “dynamic balance”.
