“Piumino” Club Chair by De Pas, D’Urbino & Lomazzi for Dell’Oca, Italy, 1970s

$5,900

About

This “Piumino” chair is an outstanding model by the Milanese architect trio, known world-wide for their enlarged ingenious works. The shape and sheer size are the most eye-catching elements, but thanks to the architectural know-how of the designers, the construction of the chair does not fall short either. The chair is moulded out of foam and covered with folded, soft cognac leather. The foam and leather materials guarantee extreme sitting comfort. Unlike the trio’s iconic “Joe Sofa” (shaped like a baseball glove), the “Piumino” avoids looking kitschy despite its exaggerated size and design. De Pas, D’Urbino and Lomazzi were part of the ‘Radical Design’ movement, which dominated Avant Garde Italian design and architecture in the late 1960s and early 1970s. This impressive club chair design was created in this period, which brought the long-lasting success of the designers. De Pas, D’Urbino & Lomazzi designed this cognac leather piece for the Italian manufacturer Dell'Oca in the 1970s. Condition: Item has some small marks and scratches, some small leather damages, fitting with the ‘rough’ appearance of the item. Dimensions: 41.33 in W x 39.37 in D x 28.34 in H 105 cm W x 100 cm D x 72 cm H. About the designers: Since 1966, Donato D’Urbino (b. 1935) and Paolo Lomazzi (b. 1936) have been working together designing architecture, objects, scenography, furnishings and urban projects. They worked with architect Jonathan De Pas (1932-1991) from the beginning of their careers until 1991 (the year of De Pas’ death). The three met while studying architecture at Milan’s Polytechnic University. During the 1960s, they showed a particular interest in the activity of creating temporary furniture and architecture, featuring the use of materials and cutting-edge industrial techniques. Architect and design studio De Pas, D’Urbino & Lomazzi was founded by the trio and became known for its unconventional seating designs, including some pop-culture icons such as the inflatable “Blow” (1967) and the kitschy “Joe Sofa” (1968). Both designs are part of the MoMa’s collection. They took the views of a changing society in which furniture was no longer desired or required to last a lifetime and introduced a collection of furniture that represented precisely the opposite. The group designed the entrance for Milan’s 14th Triennial (1968), which took the form of a long tunnel with port holes, as well as the Italian Pavilion at the Osaka World Expo (1970). In 1980, De Pas, D’Urbino & Lomazzi were instrumental in the exhibition “Italian Furniture Design 1950–1980” at the Cologne Municipal Museum. In 1987, there was an exhibition of the group’s work in Kyoto, and in the same year, the exhibition “De Pas, D’Urbino, Lomazzi” was inaugurated at the temple Daikaku-Ji, Kyoto, followed by a solo exhibition in 1992 titled “Un coro a tre voci” (A three voiced choir) at IZM Gallery Tokyo. Over several decades, the trio was the recipient of numerous awards, including the Hannover’s Design Award Winner (1998), and in 2010, their archives were declared to be of “particularly important historical interest” by the Ministry of Cultural Activities and Heritage, and were donated to CASVA (Centre of Higher Learning for Visual Arts) in Milan for preservation and consultation. In addition to their work as designers, De Pas, D’Urbino and Lomazzi have also contributed to design theory through their work with the Industrial Design Association. Their work is featured in museums and exhibitions world-wide including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Brooklyn Museum of Art in New York, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Design Museum of London, the Centre Pompidou in Paris, and the Vitra Design Museum in Weil-am-Rhein, among others. The collective is remembered and still celebrated for its efforts to connect radical design with everyday life. H.
