Joe Colombo - Kartell - Stoel (2) - Universale mod 4867
Italië - 1960-1969 - Plastic

Lot of two 'Universale' chairs, they are 50 years old and are in decent condition with some signs of wear, some parts got broken through use and time, albeit without compromising their beauty and uniqueness, but rather enhancing their charm, as you can appreciate from the images complementing the description.

This was the first industrial chair in the world to be injection-moulded from a single mould. The cylinder of the leg is cut in half to make it possible to join the chairs together; the slots on the sides make them stackable as it is possible to insert the back legs of two other chairs. Finally, the central hole provides a comfortable grip for moving the chair, allowing air circulation and water drainage in case of outdoor use.

Colombo's design career was tragically cut short in 1971 by a heart attack that killed him at the age of 41. Nevertheless, he was very productive during his (almost) ten years as a designer. Prominent projects include some of the most iconic designs of the '60s, such as the stackable chair 'Universale' (1965-1967) which was made entirely of polypropylene.

These chairs are ideal for high class interiors and exteriors, and will add an extra touch of originality to your home.

They will be carefully packaged and shipped by express courier.
