3/4 view - This chair is inspired by serveral folding mechanism and by the lightness of power-line towers and their triangulated frames.
The name Ossis XIII came from its frame: when the seat and back are detached, the frame appears to be an aluminum exoskeleton system. In Latin, ossis means bone, and XIII is the number for aluminum in the periodic table.
