Vico Magistretti New Selene

Vico Magistretti New Selene Chair by Heller
as seen in Space 1999

We were browsing the Space 1999 website (very undiscovered but one of the best modern websites we know, a real gem) and found stills from the Space 1999 set that featured the Selene chair designed by Vico Magistretti for Artemide in 1969. The Selene chair is back in production through Heller and can be purchased online. The New Selene Chair is stackable up to six chairs high which allows for easy storage. It can be used both indoors and outdoors. Included in the MoMA permanent design collection, the Vitra Museum, and leading museums around the world.

About Space 1999:
When Earth's moon is blasted out of orbit by a series of lunar nuclear waste dump explosions, the greatest adventure mankind has ever known begins for 311 men and women on Moonbase Alpha. With return to Earth impossible, the astronauts (Martin Landau, Barbara Bain, Barry Morse and others) are headed for the outer limits of space, fighting for survival amid bizarre life forms, unfathomed civilizations, hostile environments and mystic phenomena.
