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. Sacco Alato was born in foundry while making Margarita, casting
a bag of concrete and splitting it in two. Lacking any other props, the
big road rocks provided the feet for this seat/sculpture.
Almost 50 years after the first prototypes and the very few works actually
produced by Simon International, the re-edition of Sacco Alato in
the historical bronze version has been possible thanks to Alisée Matta.
Each piece is provided with a Certificate of Authenticity.
