In the 1960s, he began experimenting with plastics, vivid colours and organic forms, breaking away from traditional design conventions. His now iconic plastic creations include the ‘Ball’ (1963), the ‘Pastil’ (1968), and the ‘Bubble’ (1968) chairs which echo the pop culture and spirit of their time. He continues to innovate to this day.
