Magistretti said this chair stemmed from the desire to pay hommage to the designer Mackintosh after seeing an exhibition on the work of the Scottish architect. The element that serves as the backrest is lightly profiled to adjust to the seated position. It is one of the very few cases in which the reference to the past is not through the recovery of anonymous types and models, as Magistretti was used to doing. He revisited this formal typology with the collection of Koube chairs designed for the Japanese brand Aidec.
