A steel and aluminium structure, the Sputnik chair theoretically insists on the simplicity of its conception, materials, and inspiration. Over the course of its development, the Soviet archives on the OKB-1 were an object of study, along with technical points such as how to honour the exact dimensions of the satellite, so that its reincarnation as a seat and functional chair could meticulously respect the dimensions of the source. However, the Sputnik chair is no less complex as a triumph of smelting and an assembly of steel and aluminium. The different melting points of the composite materials require highly technical brazing, chemically-set sandblasting, and a polyurethane process, guaranteeing a faithful reproduction of the shapes and an immaculate appearance of the pieces.
