The inside of the seat is curved while the outer surface is angular.

Metal legs are inserted into the underframe, which is part of the chair's shell.

Here's some text from the designers:

--

The Lockheed Chair takes its inspiration in one of the 21st century design icon: the Ray & Charles Eames DSW.

With an aggressive design and a strong identity, it seduces thanks to its overall harmony that emerges, despite the existent contrast between inner curvy shape and the outside geometry.

    The Yazter article makes this project sound even less credible….
