The vintage set of Clear ABS Plastic and chrome Anonima Castelli Plia Folding Chairs offers a glimpse into the revolutionary design of Giancarlo Piretti. Piretti's groundbreaking work with the Plia chair redefined the very notion of folding chairs. His ingenious concept of the "3-disc pin" mechanism became a hallmark of this design.

These chairs represent a harmonious fusion of a chromed steel frame and transparent-colored ABS plastic for the seat and backrest. This innovative combination not only enhances the chair's aesthetic appeal but also sets the stage for the Plia chair to achieve iconic status.

Notably, the Plia chair stands as a beacon of "democratic design" and holds a revered place in the world of furniture. Its cultural significance is further underscored by its inclusion in the design department of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, cementing its status as an object of worship for design enthusiasts and collectors alike.

Each set includes 2 of these remarkable chairs, making it a sought-after collector's item and a testament to the enduring appeal of mid-century modern design.
