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.
