The Joe Colombo Armchair by Joe Colombo is a reissue of a design classic and is also known as the 4801 Armchair. For the first time in its 60 year history, Kartell has decided to pay homage to one of the most iconic pieces in its Museum and has reissued the Joe Colombo Armchair. Designed by Colombo in 1965, the Italian master of design is considered one of the true, great visionaries of the time. He died prematurely in 1971 at 41 years of age.
An authentic symbol of design in the sixties, much sought-after in the auctions of modern historical pieces and on show in the most important world museums such as the MOMA in New York, the Victoria & Albert in London and the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Joe Colombo Armchair is also famous for being the only piece produced by Kartell made entirely of wood - as it was originally.
The use of this material, "unusual" for a brand born with the mission to create pieces made of plastic, was due to the lack of industrial technologies which in those times were unable to produce items made of plastic.
With current industrial technology, Kartell is now able to make the same product using plastic (transparent technopolymer thermoplastic) to reproduce the curving sinuous lines of the piece in the same proportions.
The 4801 Armchair is now available in three colours enhancing its lines: crystal, black and white, and is produced in a numbered series.
