The aesthetic hallmark of the .05 chair is its sleek, reductive shape. The resilient seat shell, made of integral skin foam with embedded leaf springs, is combined with a cantilever base that flexes slightly when the sitter leans back to provide an unexpected level of comfort. The .05 chair is suited for outdoor use and is also available in a stacking version.

Although the cantilever chair has been a success story for over eighty years, .05 is the first model whose uncompromising form and flexible comfort surpass the archetypal chair without back legs designed by Mart Stam in 1926.
