Luis M. Feduchi and Javier Feduchi, father and son respectively, and both architects and furniture designers, had just finished in July 1953 the interiors of the Hilton Hotel in Madrid. The Italian influences of designers like Gio Ponti can be guessed at the same time as the taste for American interiors given that the hotel company was American. However, in the design of the parabola chair, produced for the Madrid furniture company Rolaco, other more Scandinavian influences can already be seen. The use of a geometric curve, the parabola, combined with a right angle with which the legs were made, creates the structural framework where the seat and backrest are interwoven. Made in painted steel tube had several finishes to allow using natural rope for use in the interior or, by means of plastic strips, for the outside.
