Luckily Design Milk posted about it, enabling me to determinate the photo I took at the Kartell Booth of the reissued chair 4801 by Joe Colombo.

Update: And because this is a popular post, I’ve cropped the photo a bit better. More satisfied now.

Selene Chair by Vico Magistretti (Photo Designboom)

What’s the world’s most famous chair?

The anonymous, cheap, light-weight, portable, waterproof, stackable, easy to clean, plastic patio chair, manufactured from one (ca. 2 kilogram) piece of polypropylene in a single process, or the Monobloc Plastic Chair, produced in millions

In a post Designboom describes the history of the (in)famous monobloc: After Joe Colombo designed the first all plastic chair, Stacking Chair Universale, a chair with two types of add on legs to make its hight adjustable, the Selene Chair by Vico Magistretti was the first all plastic chair in one piece.

Designboom should know, as its co founder Birgit Lohmann, worked for Vico as his personal design assistant for 15 years.
