The elastic deformation specifically defined by the user when he/she weighs on the chair, initiates a unique dialogue between the chair and the sitter. The top of the front legs are intentionally expanded a little to better sustain the base panel, while downwards the legs gradually slimmed and the section deforms from a round shape to a heart shape.
