The 1970 Mezzadro is perhaps the clearest expression of Castiglioni’s desire to use part of a pre-existing object, retaining its form but modifying where and how it is to be used: a tractor seat from the early nineties for use as a stool in the home. The prototype was presented at the Villa Olmo exhibition in 1957. It is composed of four elements: a seat, a wing nut, a leaf spring, and a crossbar. Even the special fixing system employs a familiar object used to secure the wheels of a bicycle: a large wing nut that allows you to tighten the joining parts without the use a screwdriver or key. The seat is made from a stamped and lacquered metal sheet. The stainless steel leaf spring supporting the seat is also taken from a tractor, originally positioned the other way round to absorb the bumps of off-road agricultural terrain, which gives the stool its flexibility. The solid beech crossbar, which is vaguely reminiscent of a yoke, provides two additional support points and gives the product its stability.
