SACCO ALATORoberto Matta
Sacco Alato Bronze designed by Roberto Matta for Paradisoterrestre. Roberto was one of the best-known painters in Santiago. Dino Gavina proposed a concept of ultramobile operation in 1971 to adapt the surrealist object to daily use. This work perfectly represents the concept of ultramobile operation. Sacco Alato was born in a foundry while making Margarita, casting a bag of concrete and splitting it in two. Lacking any other props, the big road rocks provided the feet for this seat/sculpture. The seat portion and backrest have polyurethane foam covered with chenille velvet. Patinated bronze lost wax casting of the modified found object. Limited edition of 25 pieces, with engraved identification number and artist's signature. Each piece is followed by a Certificate of Authenticity.
