Lassu (Limited Edition) by Alessandro Mendini. "Lassu´ (which means (being) "up there", (going) "up there") is one of the "objects for spiritual use" which Alessandro Mendini presented in the periodical Domus when calling for a "guerrilla war" on the inhospitable world of functionalism. The archetypal chair rests on a slanted pyramid, which makes it difficult to sit down on. But once you are sitting on it, you get a new and different view of things.
