Description:
 

Joe Colombo's design objects and interiors are eccentric, original, futuristic solutions, perfectly in line with the american pop culture started during the 60s.

Tube chair composed of four ready-made upholstered semi-rigid cylinders which, once again, could be put together into any shape the user desired. The final futuristic touch was the packaging. Colombo insisted that the cylinders of each Tube chair were sold "off-the-shelf" in a drawstring bag of his design. info source: www.designmuseum.org

Polypropylene tubes paddded with blue polyurethane foam rubber / metal and rubber assembling elements, in order to combine the tubes. info source: www.artnet.com

always regarding the user’s flexible needs, joe colombo becomes increasingly involved in creating modular furniture. his statement - ‘habits change, the interior of rooms has to change with them’ - expresses the central idea of the following examples. the ‘additional system’, ‘tube chair’ or ‘multi chair’ are some examples of his mobile collection which accomodate the individual purposes in a wide range. the different sized pieces can be pinned together in various configurations to form chairs, sofas or whole living landscapes. info source: www.designboom.com
