Guess What This Chair Is Made of?

Artist Mario Minale created this chair (which I saw showcased at the 20th Century Modernism Show) for Droog as a reproduction of Gerrit Rietveld's famous Red and Blue Chair. To build it, he used 4,484 small plastic pieces around an aluminum frame, making it six percent larger than the original. Of the design he said, "In becoming 'more' than the original in multiple ways, the design becomes a statement on modernism, the emancipation of the individual in a postmodern society and ultimately an invitation to participate and have fun, revealing opportunities in unpretentious materials and techniques." Can you tell me what pieces Minale used to reconstruct the chair?
