The retro chair is a piece that stems from research that led to relive some periods that marked the history of art . In the 60s and 70s, where contemporary art is now taken into account , and that is when this piece is based on Op Art and Pop Art , etc. . It was through this " sentimental nostalgia ," recalling and using "modern" forms that create this piece . Which include high gloss lacquered and fabrics with geometric elements . This limited edition , RETRODRAW , hand-painted , invite the street artist Frederico Draw to intervene through a gesture on the part of contemporary RETRO and reinvent their concept . The result was transporting an element that has become increasingly topical in the discourse about cities : the graffiti , which confronts the retro lines of the play itself , thus creating a strong dichotomy - past and present .
