Kartell Colombo Chair

colombo chair
Design Joe Colombo
Dyed polypropylene
Made in Italy by Kartell

A great classic of the history of Italian design, displayed in many museums throughout the world. The first industrial seat in the world injected in a single mold. The chair offers numerous design solutions: the cylindrical leg is cut down the middle to enable side-by-side positioning with other chairs; the grooves at the side of the seat solve the problem of stacking. Finally, the central hole makes a handy grip for moving the seats as well as for allowing circulation of air and water in the case of outdoor use. This overlappable chair is characterised by the comfort offered by the ergonomics of the seat and back, and by the excellent characteristics of resistance to impact and atmospheric agents.

Joe Colombo, in his design utopia, gathered many of the common hopes of the 60's in Italy and Europe but was never slave to ideological bounds. His extremely fast escalation in becoming an internationally known designer brought him three medals at the XIII Triennale in Milan, the 1967 Compasso d'Oro award and creations which are included in permanent collections around the world.
