Emperor Palpatine has the best chair in all the galaxy

There is information available about who designed the chair Palpatine uses in Episode III. I'm looking for similar information regarding his throne in Episode VI.

I find it interesting that at some point somebody changed the leather pattern on the chair so the back matched the seat, instead of having contrasting strips like in Joe Johnston's sketch and the initial sculpture.

They also carried the padding up to the very top of the chair, whereas in the sculpture there was a dark void that framed the crown of the Emperor's head, rather like an anti-halo. Was that meant to have a glowing panel installed at one point like in the Johnston sketch? I can see how that might make lighting his face difficult on set.

Design: The chair is Emperor Palpatine's iconic throne from the Star Wars universe. It's a blend of leisure and fandom, perfect for those who want to rule their poolside empire.

Appearance: The chair is black with vertical purple stripes on the backrest. These stripes could represent an air conditioning feature, keeping you cool even in the scorching Tatooine sun.

Control Panel: The armrests seem to house control panels. Perhaps you can adjust the chair's settings, activate the lights, or even issue Sith commands (though I recommend keeping it light-hearted).

Motorized Features: You mentioned a drive and steering motor. Imagine gliding across the water, plotting galactic domination while sipping a refreshing beverage. Just be careful not to accidentally summon Force lightning.

Lights: While not visible in this image, I envision subtle LED lights illuminating the chair. Picture yourself reclining under the stars, feeling both regal and relaxed.

Air Conditioning: Yes, please! No need to sweat like a stormtrooper. The built-in air conditioning ensures comfort, even during the hottest Mustafar summers.
