JOE, THE FIRST MONOGRAPH BY POLTRONOVA
Centro Studi Poltronova (the Poltronova Research Center) was created in 2005, among other purposes, to build an archive of important documents related to the historic Poltronova brand. The research work has led to the edition of a series of publications of its most famous products, true icons of contemporary design.
Centro Studi Poltronova presents a series of monographs dedicated to the most innovative design pieces that, together, contribute to constitute a micro-history of Italian design. This is the first monograph of the series, entirely dedicated to Joe, a hand-chair created by the DDL studio and presented for the first time at the Milan Furniture Fair in 1970.
