Iconic and famous chairs from the Artemide Company; since its debut on the market, the famous Selene Chair designed by Vico Magistretti has stood out as an elegant and functional type of seating. The conception of this piece of furniture helped to demonstrate that even with the use of technologies something refined and not just useful could be born. Mass-produced, the Selene is technically made by a single molding and pressing action of fiberglass-reinforced polyester injection molding. The designer decided to solve the structural problem of the legs by opting for an "S" shape that gave greater strength to the plastic sheet only 3 millimeters thick. The "S" leg maintains the rigidity of the seat and prevents the seat from bending under the user's weight. It is now a cult object a true collectible design product. Selene is a chair designed to be used both indoors and outdoors, practical and handy and its particular shape allows it to be stacked. Soft, rounded lines are typical of the 1970s Space Age. Our chairs were designed by Vico Magistretti and produced by Artemide (Pregnana Milanese, Milan) between 1969 and 1970, they bear the mark of originality stamped on the back of the seat (see photo).
