This “functional work of art” represents in an exemplary way the concept of Ultramobile, operation conceived by Dino Gavina in 1971 with the aim of adapting in a surprising way the surrealist object to daily use. Margarita was cast in bronze the first time to fix an idea: it is a petrol can, opened up like a daisy, a barrel turned into a tribal throne.
Almost 50 years after the first prototypes and the very few works actually produced by Simon International, the re-edition of Margarita in a brand new aluminium version has been possible thanks to Alisée Matta.

Each piece is provided with a Certificate of Authenticity.
