In 1960 the scientist, inventor and musician Manfred Clynes coined the term cyborg, which then grew ever more popular thanks to innumerable sci-fi novels and films; it designates an organism that combines natural and artificial elements. Designer Marcel Wanders interprets this fusion as the expression of a continuous search for new combinations, in today’s world, where it seems there is nothing truly new left to invent. This is the background to the creation of Cyborg, a seat with a highly resistant and versatile polycarbonate shell. The seat can then be completed with backrests in a selection of different natural or synthetic materials: from polycarbonate to wicker, from solid wood to plywood, to the most recent upholstered versions with fabric or leather cover. This further evolution of the chair is in equal parts poetic and technological, cosy and surprising, in keeping with the widest range of different settings.
