Joe Colombo for Comfort Lounge Chair 'Elda' in Red Leather and Fiberglass
Joe Colombo for Comfort, lounge chair ‘Elda’, fiberglass, red leather, Italy, design 1963, later production
The ‘Elda’ chair is one of the most well-known designs of Italian designer Joe Colombo. This lounge chair is one of the first designs using new material fiberglass in a great amount. Joe Colombo named this design ‘Elda’ in honor of his wife. The white fiberglass shell is fitted around the patinated red leather cushions that support the sitter from all sides. The way the leather is tufted in thick tubes characterizes the ‘Elda’ lounge chair in an unparalleled manner. The ‘Elda’ chair is also represented in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Louvre in Paris.
Pleas note that the leather is in patinated condition with some cracks all-over.
