Description

The “Universale” chair designed by Joe Colombo in 1967 was the world's first plastic chair for adults to be made of ABS. 

Its structure, with a single-piece back and seat, and legs applied under pressure, is reminiscent of Zanuso and Sapper's children's chair. The hole, though extremely complicated to obtain in the moulding phase because it risked weakening the entire structure, was a defining aesthetic and functional element of the chair, making it easier to pick up. Another aspect that made the "Universale" chair difficult to manufacture was the choice of material, which had to withstand high humidity for outdoor use. Therefore Kartell with the advancement of technologies used increasingly durable materials. The chair exited the catalogue in 2012, after 45 years of production.
