Brad Pitt is debuting a furniture line in collaboration with Frank Pollaro known for his reproductions of Art Deco furnishings. The unveiling will take place November 13 through 15 in New York.
Almost all of us have heard of Brad's passion for architecture and design made clear through his Make It Right foundation which focused on providing housing after the Katrina catastrophe. He admits that his love for architecture started when he registered for a 2-point credit course in college.
All of the initial designs, customizable in a variety of materials and finishes, will be made in numbered editions or limited production and signed by Pitt and Pollaro. Though Pollaro declines to discuss specific figures, he notes that his prices are “typically at the highest end of the custom-furnishings scale, and these will be up there, even north of that.” But, he adds, eventually certain pieces may be adapted for larger-scale production, in different materials—a chair in molded plastic, say. “The same chair we charge $45,000 for might sell for a fraction of that,” he says.
