MAgriTTA Chair by Roberto Sebastian Matta for Studio Simon Gavina, 2000
MAgriTTA chair designed by Sebastian Matta (1911-2002) and produced by Studio Simon Gavina, the Studio founded by Dino Gavina, for the Ultramobile series in 1971. Roberto Matta designed this chair as a tribute to his friend and fellow surrealist painter René Magritte. The name MAgriTTA is a combination of the names Magritte and Matta. The apple and black bowler hat are two of Magritte’s trademarks, derived from his famous 1946 self-portrait “The Son of Man”. In the painting, Magritte shows herself with a bowler hat and an apple. The surreal aspect is a green apple floating in the air hiding its face. Matta playfully adapted the painting by making a fiberglass bowler hat, upside down, with a green foam apple inside it. When sat on, the foam of the apple would have compressed into the hat. The condition of this MAgriTTA chair is still good; the green fabris has egal discoloration because of the sun and the apple stalk has been replaced. Material: fiberglass shell with black fabric, green fabric and polyurethane foam. Dimensions: h x w x d = 60 x 87 x 92 cm. Source: Dino Gavina catalogue 1950-1992, page 85.

PROTECTIVE PACKAGING AND RELIABLE TRANSPORT PARTNERS
Safe delivery of your products starts with proper protective packaging. We use bubble wrap, cardboard, tape and packing polythene. Corners and fragile parts are protected with cardboard. T0 make sure the products are stable in the cardboard box, we use foam or air cushions. If we have to disassemble the products, we will provide a manual for easier assembling.

MARGIN SCHEME, NORMAL VAT AND EXPORT
All prices in our webshop are in euro's and VAT included (if applicable). By default we use the margin scheme, a special tax regulation for used goods. All prices are vat included, but there is no vat amount mentioned on the invoice. Outside Europe we use the same prices. To compensate, we don't charge additional payment- and handling costs.
Do you have a company with the right to deduct VAT? We can also create normal VAT-quotes and/of invoices. For companies within the Netherlands against 21% vat and for EU companies against 0% btw (an intra-Community supply requires a valid EU VAT-number). The normal vat-quote can be requested via de webshop or the contacttab.
For Dutch companies the total amount including vat will be higher, because we will have to calculate and charge vat on the total amount. The vat excluded amount will be lower and makes this opportunity interesting.
