Miranda can be upholstered in plaited webbing, sheepskin or fully upholstered in Tonus fabric or Elmosoft leather over polyether (CHMR) foam with a supporting web. When upholstered the fabric or leather is button stitched to create a padded effect.
Bruno Mathsson had introduced his three basic chair models, easy, working and lounge chair (Model 36), in the late 1930’s and as early as 1942 had designed a variation of the easy chair
(called Model 42) in which he combined the seat, back and front legs to form a single curved frame of laminated wood. However, the idea was dropped as the glue was not strong enough to hold the structure together.
In 1978, with stronger glues available, Mathsson developed his original idea to both the work chair, which was named Mina and the easy chair named Miranda. Both Miranda and Mina have a softer leading edge to the front of the seat to aid blood circulation.
