Description

Sometimes known as the Tractor stool, the Mezzadro employs a tractor seat designed in the early 1900’s as a stool for the home, designed for the 1957 Triennial at Villa Olmo. It is made of four pieces: the seat, a large wing nut, a leaf spring and a cross bar. The seat is in stamped, enamelled metal; the chromed steel leaf spring supporting the seat, which acts as a shock absorber in a tractor, here is turned the opposite way to make the seat springier. The wooden cross bar (solid beech), which vaguely resembles a yoke, furnishes two additional points of support needed to make the seat stable.
