Exclusive furniture can be playful and iconic, provocative, stimulating, and even liberating! We believe nothing fits these characteristics better than Postmodern Italian Design! Strong visual statements and humor are kings and queens in the six fun and limited edition pieces we’ve selected! Design Limited Edition dares you not to smile at these amazing Italian Designs!
Tube Chair by Joe Colombo
Before focusing on architecture and industrial design, Joe Colombo exhibited as a fine artist! The 1969 Tube chair is an example of the artist’s unconventional thinking and wishes to design simply portable pieces that can be adapted to the comfort and taste of the customer. The Tube Chair is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City!
Pratone Chaise by Giorgio Ceretti, Piero Derossi and Riccardo Rosso
The iconic Pratone presents a lounging place for individuals or groups. Representing a magnified portion of a grassy meadow, this Italian Design piece remains iconic after 50 years! The Pratone immediately became the symbol of a new and different approach to interiors, after its release in 1971.
Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni’s Snoopy Lamp
Snoopy, one of the world’s most famous cartoon characters was the inspiration for the Milan-based Castiglioni Brothers. Created in 1967, the Snoopy lamp has an oblong shade, sat on a slanted base, which suggests the head and muzzle of the beloved beagle drawn by comic-strip artist Charles Schulz.
Ultrafragola Mirror by Ettore Sottsass
In 1981 this funny mirror came to life, through the hands of Ettore Sottsass, before founding the Memphis Group. The flamboyant and sensuous mirror challenges modernism’s clean lines and austere shapes.
Marcantonio’s Forest Lounge Chair
Marcantonio’s furnishings highlight sculptural beauty and elegant irony. The contemporary designer and sculptor transforms everyday objects into cheerfully thought-provoking works of art. His Vegetal Animal series caricatures floral and faunal forms, expressing his love for nature and modern Italian Design.
Tour Table by Gae Aulenti
Most remembered for changing a Paris train station into the galleries of the Musée d’Orsay, Gae Aulenti reimagined her witty and provocative 1993 table. Simple, and irreverent, this table is an art piece with a timeless aesthetic that triggers the viewer’s imagination by reinterpreting the use of bicycle wheels.
