Designs that become iconic are not always voluntary creations of the artist himself, but can also be requested pieces.

This was because the people who were going to make use of them were executives or businessmen who would handle business in the hotel lobby, so, to make it friendly the hotel decided to create an authentic and comfy piece to make their experience enjoyable.
