Artemide Set

designed by Vico Magistretti
SKU YV109

Magistretti designed these chairs with both materiality and structure in mind. The S-shaped curve of the legs fade into the seat and the back rest, creating moments of hollowness and sculpture but also adding much needed stability to the thin plastic legs.
