This Vitra miniature is a replica of the Mezzadro Seat designed in 1957 by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. The designers used a common tractor seat for the springy metal seat, fastening it with a wing nut to the spring-based arched steel strip utilized in tractors to absorb the shock of uneven ground.

They enhanced the stability of the cantilever structure by a wooden cross-strut that resembled the rungs of a wooden ladder. Each of these parts clearly embodies its task as a part of a functional whole. And what strikes the eye is the recourse to an artistic method exemplified by Marcel Duchamp's found objects or Pablo Picasso's assemblages. The Castiglionis considered a design successful only once they had managed to eliminate all the unnecessary components and an optimal formal expression had been found for this concentration on the essential.
