The Birillo chairs in Ocaña DF

The white leather high chairs that are in Ocaña DF were designed by Joe Colombo.
Joe Cesare Colombo (1930 – 1971) was an advanced Italian industrial designer of his time. He created a series of innovations that made of him one of the influencers of the prestigious Italian design. His creations were designed for the environment of the future. He started experimenting with new materials, such as reinforced plastic and with new construction techniques and manufacturing methods.

   

In Ocaña DF we have its Birillo Chair, the stool he designs in 1964-1970. He designed it during the development of his ambitious Visiona project to create an imaginary living space. Robust and versatile with well-hidden wheels underneath its base, it was intended for use in fashion offices as well as in bars.
