“There has to be irony, both in design and in the objects. I see around me a professional disease of taking everything too seriously. One of my secrets is to joke all the time.” — Achille Castiglioni
The Sella stool is a wild ride of a piece of furniture from the minds of brothers Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. Designed in 1957, the Sella wasn't produced until 1983 - talk about being ahead of its time!
It is the perfect combination of form and function, with an extra dash of humour thrown in for good measure. On one hand, it's a (mostly) usable piece of furniture, a "telephone stool" designed for unusual postures. But on the other hand, it could be a work of art straight out of Dadaism - should you sit on it or put it in a museum? It's safe to say, that in the past years, I’ve since caught the Zanotta bug."
