Chair #50

—Designed by Joe D'Urso for Donghia

This fully upholstered chair has a tight seat and curved back. Woah! Yeah, we're still talking about chairs here. The upholstered frame is raised on a formed and polished stainless steel tube cantilever base. This piece is pre-upholstered in muslin to minimize puckering of upholstery fabric. In the early 1970s, Joe D’Urso defined the high-tech look of the loft with chrome, glass, leather, rubber, and industrial supplies, and also made slick chairs like this.
