About this vintage design furniture

Dressboy Lillo designed by Jonathan de Pas, Donato D’Urbino and Paolo Lomazzi in 1984 for Ciatti, Florence, Italy. As can be seen in the images is this happy Servomutodressboy in great condition. Picking a mundane object, seemingly at random, and transforming it by exaggerating its size was a recurrent theme in the work of the Radical Design movement, which dominated Avant garde Italian design and architecture in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Mr. De Pas, Mr. D’Urbino and Mr. Lomazzi, who were part of the movement, applied the same strategy to assorted objects over the years, including Lego bricks and a baseball glove: turning the first into shelving and the second into an armchair. De Pas, D’Urbino and Lomazzi, as their practice was called, was formed in 1966, when the three co-founders were in their early 30s. They worked together for 35 years, mostly in a building on via Rossini, which had housed so many artists’ studios that it was known locally as "Ca di Pittur" or the "Painter’s House," until Mr. De Pas died in 1991. Ms. Antonelli remembers him as "the nicest instructor" at the club in Sardinia where she learned to sail as a child. Like his colleagues, he was obsessed with sailing. Mr. D’Urbino and Mr. Lomazzi have continued to collaborate since his death. Despite being less well known, especially outside Italy, than some of their contemporaries, including Joe Colombo, Ettore Sottsass and the Castiglioni brothers, De Pas, D’Urbino - Lomazzi produced several objects that are recognizable even to people who have never heard their names. The Sciangai is among them, as is Blow, an inflatable chair, and Joe, the armchair they designed as a giant replica of a leather baseball glove and named after Joe DiMaggio, the star center fielder for the New York Yankees from 1936-1951.
