Sella by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni for Zanotta

$1,310

About

Seat. Black saddle racing-style bicycle seat, pink lacquered steel column on a cast-iron base. Designed by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni in 1957 for the Italian furniture brand Zanotta. "Irony and attention to the functions are the assumptions on which ‘jugglers’ Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni based their participation in the exhibition Colori e forme nella casa d’oggi, at Villa Olmo, Como, in 1957. This was one of the founding experiences of the Italian design culture, where, as if by magic, a real racing bicycle saddle (Sella) appeared, mounted on a stainless steel column supported by a heavy hemispherical base, capable of a ‘dynamic balance’." - Zanotta
