Selene Stacking Chairs, 1961
Heller, USA (originally for Artemide SpA, Italy)

Designer
Vico Magistretti

Material
Fiberglass reinforced polypropylene

Dimensions
W 47 cm, H 75 cm, D 50 cm


Selene is an injection molded stacking chair.

Aiming to create a single-piece chair in compression-moulded plastic with a traditional four-legged form, Magistretti resolved the technical difficulties associated with the strength of the legs by configuring them in an S-shape.

The chair is included in the MoMA permanent design collection, the Vitra Museum, and leading museums around the world.
