||After winning first prize in the AJ.A. International Chair Competition in 1977, it took five years for this chair to go on the production line. It is not unusual for an industrial product involving dies for press or injection to take some time before mass production, but in this case the change of manufacturer caused further delays. The time was shortly after the oil crisis when prices of petrochemical materials surged, and the development from the conceptual design to the production model sought after a comfortable yet slim chair with minimal use of material.
