With the installation Montserrat and the Lalita chair, Benedetta Tagliabue – Miralles Tagliabue EMBT pay tribute to the inspiration Enric Miralles drew from the mountain Montserrat, known in Catalonia for being a magical place.

The installation is based around one of his sketches studying the curvature of the mountains profile and is completed by the Lalita chair, a seat for two designed by Caterina Miralles Tagliabue and Fabio Andrico, that accompany the hanging profile of Montserrat with a spiritual experience.
