Supreme‘s seasonal accessory releases have garnered much more fame than most of its ready-to-wear drops. Fall/Winter 2018 looks to be no different as fans will get a chance to cop a stopwatch, RC car, digital scale, anatomy figures and more. One item that also stands out is the inflatable chair. Turns out, however, this isn’t the first time these designs have been seen.

According to MoMa, where the chairs are in the institution’s online collection, three designers named Jonathan De Pas, Donato D’Urbino, and Paolo Lomazzi actually created the eye-catching furniture to capture the “youthful, playful expression” of the 1960s. The items soon became a hit and reached iconic status in those times as they became the “first mass-produced” inflatable chairs. Made out of PVC and given a candy-colored appearance, they were considered more “affordable” than other works of “high-style” Italian design.

Now, a 1967 version of one of these pieces is going for $1663.80 USD at auction site 1stDibs.
