More chair-bending

I've seen this chair on the Internet several times over the years. I even tried to model it once, but quicky gave up. The chair came up again the other day, so I gave the model another go. Couldn't have done it without Fredo6's Fredoscale--specifically, the radial bending option. Plus lots of trial and error. Mostly error.
The original chair is the creation of Joe Colombo, a very influential Italian designer from the 1950s and 60s. He was a proponent of minimalist design and decor. The chair is the first piece Colombo designed for a firm called Kartell, and it's made of molded plywood. The original dates from 1965; reproductions are still available, in plywood or plastic (the material Colombo favored).
I did the render in Shaderlight.

Thank you, sir. I'm glad the chair has only three pieces.
