Sella chair | Zanotta

 

Let’s go back to the 1950s. At that time the majority of home phones were mounted on the wall and, in order to use them, people had to stand next to the device for the whole conversation. Why am I telling you this? Because, if you’re too young to remember or know this, you can’t fully understand why I love the Sella, a stool created by Achille and Piergiacomo Castiglioni.

First introduced in 1957, the Sella stool was designed for people who wanted to lean on something while talking on the phone instead of standing next to the wall. The innovative design mounts a black leather bicycle saddle on an adjustable pink steel tube that is set in a balance made from cast iron. Today, it’s easy for me talk on the phone wherever and whenever I want, but the Sella’s vintage feel and great backstory makes any conversation fun.
