  • 'Sunball': a rare garden seat
lacquered fibreglass and aluminium, the spherical exterior opening to reveal upholstered seating for two with two fitted trays, a light and speakers, on a swivel foot

Catalogue Note

The Sunball chair was advertised at the time as an outdoor model for sunning and relaxing. Being kept outside, many pieces have suffered from the strain of wind and weather and show the effects of exposure. The model was issued optionally with a light and speakers. This piece includes both.

According to Selldorf circa 30 of these chairs were produced. A copy of a letter by Herbert Selldorf stating this is available upon request.
