Modular and flexible, essential and customizable: the Tube Chair – an iconic presence in the permanent collections of the Triennale in Milan, and the MoMA and Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York – has undergone a contemporary renovation using new avant-garde technical advancements that ensure all the characteristics of Joe Colombo’s original design remain unaltered. A cross between a chaise longue and a canapé, an object of design and the authentic reflection of a lifestyle, Tube Chair defies time with its emblematic, mutable appearance.
Created in 1969, the seat is based upon a completely de-structured design: In fact, it is composed of four hollow cylinders made with a rotational moulding process to obtain interchangeable elements that can be assembled assembled at will and fastened together in a compact manner. From the backrest to the seat, each unit can be placed in multiple positions, giving life to an element of design that reflects one’s individual needs and tastes.
The tubes that compose the chair are fastened by metal clamps. The upholstery is available in leather or bi-elastic fabric. The chromatic palette includes Cappellini’s signature colours: white, black, yellow, turquoise and orange.

Cappellini was founded in 1946 by Enrico Cappellini in the Italian Brianza region, north of Milan. Cappellini began as a furniture maker specializing in wooden furniture and case goods. After Enrico’s son Giulio joined the company, bringing a passion for art & design, Cappellini experienced a creative evolution that has placed them at the forefront in the world of design and furnishings.
Cappellini’s collections are known for tapping new trends and far-flung talents; often described as a 'tutti-frutti' affair, with minimalism offered up alongside pop fashion, technology, and amoebic forms.
