The original “Armchair 4801” from Joe Colombo is an authentic symbol of the 1960s since it was presented, which is the reason why Kartell honours it with a place in the brand’s own museum. The original edition is expensive on auctions, which might be because this one is the only Kartell product made of wood.
The re-edition of the Joe Colombo armchair however, is made of high class plastic, since it is the characteristic material of the Italian manufacturer Kartell. Only the modern processing makes it possible to produce the comfortable, slim and curved shape of PMMA.
The armchair is available in a numbered series in three colours – transparent, white and black, wonderfully emphasizing the shape.
