Brad Pitt‘s first furniture line will be unveiled in New York
Passionate about design, decoration and architecture, actor Brad Pitt unveils its first furniture line at an exhibition running from November 13 through 15 at Pollaro New York, creators of museum quality furniture for diverse applications including residential, yachts, corporate suites, boutique hotels, and retail interiors.
Brad Pitt turned designer for U.S. furniture designer Frank Pollaro, the creative couple creating an Art Deco- influenced range of tables, chairs, elaborate beds and marble bathtub.
“I’m drawn to furniture design as complete architecture on a minor scale,” said Brad Pitt. “I am obsessively bent on quality, to an unhealthy degree.”
“There is something more grand at play, as if you could tell the story of one’s life with a single line — from birth to death, with all the bloody triumphs and perceived humiliating losses, even boredoms, along the way,” the actor said about the influence by Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s Glasgow Rose.
“It started with my introduction to Mackintosh’s Glasgow rose, which is drawn with one continuous line,” says Pitt. “But for me there is something more grand at play, as if you could tell the story of one’s life with a single line.”
Brad Pitt x Frank Pollaro pricey furniture line was revealed in Architectural Digest latest issue. Many of the designs incorporate the idea of a single line. That line can be geometric, as in the case of a 17-foot-long wood dining table whose jagged base dramatically zigzags at unexpected angles. Or it can be sinuous, as with a glass -top side table that features a wispy spiraling metal base finished in 24K gold, states the magazine.
Brad Pitt has been practicing designer talent in projects like Make It Right foundation and diamond ring project for Angelina Jolie. For Make It Right foundation Brad Pitt created affordable quality housing for the victims of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.
