A new manufacturing process was created for this high tech fabric, called Nido d'Ape (Honeycomb), that knots PVC in a way somewhat like macrame. Says Urquiola, "My intention was to maintain the lateral aluminium double moulding but with a seat and back similar to taut netting, a soft and pleasant grid, in three dimensions, which we have achieved after two years of research."
