Put the coarse before the fine, preferring a choice that goes against the trend of the more common research on the thin shape. And, despite this, keep yourself light, light.

Resting on it, a seat cushion with a rounded shape, a veiled suggestion to the idea of the inflatable module. The backrest, like a bold parenthesis, promises comfort. The effect, in addition to the natural sympathy, is that of a pleasant roundness, casual and light.
