The RM58 Mat armchair is the contemporary version of the iconic RM58 Composite armchair created in 1958 by designer Roman Modzelwski. Thanks to a molding technique we find on the RM58 Mat the original shape but worked with modern materials.
For the anecdote, a photo of the chair arrived in the hands of Le Corbusier in 1961, he wanted to obtain the license but the Polish authorities at the time blocked the sale. Probably because the seat also tells the story of socialist Poland, which did not allow the manufacture of chairs in fiberglass, a material reserved for military use at the time.
The matte version shown here is made of hard plastic. The foam and fabric version is available here .
