Joe Chair jchair2 jchair3 jchair4

The Joe chair is a unique piece of furniture that was designed in 1970 by three Italian architects; Jonathan De Pas, Donato D’Urbino and Paolo Lomazzi for Italian furniture company Poltronova. Shaped like a giant baseball glove the chair pays homage to baseball champ Joe DiMaggio and pop artist Claes Oldenburg. This cult classic is part of the permanent collection of the MOMA.

Fears and Kahn currently have a 1980s edition available for sale.
