    A number of spectacular designs ushered in the heyday of plastic furniture in the 1960s. In comparison to the designs of contemporaries, who turned to Pop Art for inspiration, the furniture and lighting objects created by Milanese architect Vico Magistretti are notable for their restrained formal idiom. Magistretti’s stackable one-piece plastic chair »Selene« was commissioned by Ernesto Gismondi, the owner of the company Artemide. Its most remarkable feature is the design of the legs: the S-shaped curves increase tensile strength while permitting an unusually slim and elegant silhouette.
