Design Joe Colombo
Transparent or batch-dyed PMMA
Made in Italy by Kartell

For the first time in its 60-year history, Kartell will pay homage to one of the most iconic - and perhaps uncharacteristic - pieces in its archive with the reissue of Joe Colombo’s 4801 Armchair. Originally designed by the Italian master in 1965, the 4801 chair is famous for being the only Kartell piece ever to be made entirely of wood. Now, nearly fifty years later, Kartell has developed the complex and technically challenging engineering methods necessary to produce the design as originally envisioned, in its signature plastic. An authentic symbol of design in the '60s, the highly sought-after 4801 chair is revered by private collectors and institutions alike, and has been displayed internationally at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

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.

Suitable for indoor/outdoor use.
24.4" w | 25.2" d | 23.2" h | seat: 11.8" h | 43.9 lbs.

Joe Colombo

Colombo’s career in painting began in 1949 and he joined the Movimento Nucleare as both an active painter and sculptor within abstract Expressionism. After joining the Art Concept Group in 1955, Colombo gave up painting to promote his design career.
The Kartell brand comes alive through design enthusiasm which can be appreciated by observing Kartell products. Expressing design languages in collaboration with talented designers is Kartell's super power.
