Joe Colombo Early 4801 Lounge Chair Kartell Italy 1964

Early 4801 lounge chair designed by Joe Colombo in 1964 for Kartell Italy.
The chair is numbered 358.
Design icon and one of my favorite chairs.
The chair is made out of three interlocking pieces of molded plywood. No glue, screws or nails were used. This design required two years of development prior to its production.
This model was produced only for a short time and therefore hard to find and quite rare.
The chair still has its original paint and has a nice patine.
It is in good original condition. Some normal traces of use. A tiny bit of lacquer damage here and there and 1 repair in the corner of the bottom side (last photo).

This product is SOLD.
