I've seen the bean. It has a pvc component?
actually, that whole metallic looking skin is PVC.
whoa, what? where'd you get your info? I read this on the click thru site - It is a 33 feet by 62 by 44 feet of stainless steel plates welded together and has a highly polished exterior that does not expose any seams.
(i'm just pretty surprised/amazed if true)
i'm not sure what component is PVC, then, but I know that it says that it's three steel rings with a large PVC membrane.
ah, got it. wow... pvc is everywhere. :)
