Tata is clearly meant for the high-end market segment. It features a more structured concept, focused mainly on design aspects and technical details.

Tata Young is thought to meet the demands of a younger audience, going for a stripped-down version with a competitive price. Tata Young's most noticeable peculiarity is certainly the seat fastening which follows a quite different approach: a metal tubular section is combined with a single soft line in the back of the structure, embracing the seat fastening cover made of techno-polymer.
 
The team conducted extensive research on design and production of every single element that lends this chair technical qualities in perfect balance with its aesthetic aspects. First of all it's the 'drop shaped' tubular section of the legs. This choice allowed the designers to exploit the full aesthetic potential and achieved a twofold aim: softness and volume on one side, essential lines on the other. The drop shape adapts well to these propositions, providing an open frame with precise lines that can evolve in the roundness of the legs and the oval shape of seat and backrest. By virtue of this solution a narrow frame can guarantee the desired structural strength.

The diagonals of the back legs guide directly to the one conjunctive element: the seat fastening junction in die-cast aluminum. Both structurally and aesthetically important, it has been designed to show a balanced overall shape and, moreover, provide for an easy and resilient mounting of the backrest which helped to reduce the thickness of the techno-polymer layer. Not at least it's this precious detail which creates continuity between the structure and the single elements.
