This chair is the fruit of an unprecedented collaboration between a furniture manufacturer [Plank], a plastics company [BASF] and a designer [Konstantin Grcic]. Together, they aimed to create a stackable cantilever chair made of plastic. It was very easy to make using the injection-moulding process, enabling the hair’s slightest details to be accentuated.
While the cantilever chairs conceived in the early 20th century by Marcel Breuer and Mies an der Rohe exhibit a studied elegance, and Verner Panton’s curved model  evokes a fluid style of futurism, the Myto chair, seen as he third version of the concept, is characterized by its rugged, explicitly industrial aspect. As for the material used, the petrochemical company BASF invited Konstantin Grcic to work with its most recent product, an ultra fluid plastic named Ultradur® High speed [PBT]. Until then, it had generally been used by the car industry on account of its structural qualities. The name Myto is a reference to the sports motor cycle Cagiva Mito . The chair won the IF Product Design Award in 2009 and the Compasso D’Oro in 2011.
