JOE
Armchair designed by De Pas, D’Urbino, Lomazzi

Joe is a big comfortable chair in the form of a giant baseball glove, mounted on invisible wheels. With this project the designers, inspired by the poetics of Pop Art, gave material form to their admiration for the legendary American baseball star Joe Di Maggio. With a courageous shift of scale, they transformed the glove into a welcoming place to sit, inserting a hyperrealist figure borrowed from the world of art into the domestic environment.

JOE PLUSH

It is a special edition curated by Centro Studi Poltronova for Design, on the occasion of Joe’s 50th anniversary.
