Miss has its roots in the craft tradition, at once memory and experimentation. The shape refers to a system of rhythms of lines, with a soft and flowing design. The legs are slender and spread apart, to ensure stability. The front ones bend to form armrests and continue into the curve of the backrest. The rear ones reach the backrest from behind, to support it. The seat is inserted between the lines and connects them.

What strikes one most, is the line: not in the current sense of a line as a “style”, but because the form is reduced to a linear chord or rhythm.
