The visionary Dino Gavina founded his firm Simon in 1968. His objective was to produce the innovative furniture designs of contemporary designers in an industrially manufactured series. SIMON became well-known through its three editions; Ultrarazionale (1968), Ultramobile (1971) and Metamobile (1974). The Ultramobile-Collection contained several surreal pieces of furniture with a strong symbolic presence and paid homage to artists such as René Magritte, Constantin Brancusi, Man Ray, Roberto Sebastian Matta and Meret Oppenheim. Designed in 1971 by Man Ray, purchased in 1972.
