    B-Line Colombo Superleggera Chaise Lounge Chair
    Designer: Joe Colombo
    Manufacturer: B-Line

    The extremely comfortable Superleggera armchair was designed by Joe Colombo in 1964. The B-Line Superleggera (Superlight) Chair by Joe Colombo is in the permanent collection of the Vitra Design Museum and numerous other collections, both private and public. The Superleggera is a sophisticated armchair composed of an oil-varnished, curved multilayer walnut structure and anatomical padded cushion with leather upholstery. With its curved elements the Superleggera has a sculptural expression. This chair offers a high degree of comfort since the weight of a person can be fully dispersed. The large number of seams, sewn by hand, make the chair very unique.

    Cesare (known as Joe) Colombo was born in Milan in 1930. Essentially self-taught, he attended the Academy in Brera and the faculty of Architecture at the Politecnico di Milano for a few years. Joe Colombo was extremely prolific and could handle just about anything, like a Leonardo da Vince of the 1960's. Before becoming a designer he worked as a painter, builder, car salesman and entrepreneur in the electrics field. The technological utopia of Joe Colombo's design encompasses many of the hopes of the 1960's in Italy and Europe without being imprisoned by ideological restraints. Joe Colombo passed away at the very young age of 41 but never the less left an impressive and extremely wide oeuvre include the Coupe lamp, the Acrilica lamp, the Boby Storage Trolley, the Multichair, the Elda chair and the Joe Colombo Visiona expo. In 1969 when he was just 39 years old, he already had three of his objects in the permanent collection at the MoMA. Joe Colombo, just like Verner Panton during the same period, typifies the best of Space Age modern design of the late 1960's.
