Brad Pitt: Furniture Designer for Pollaro!

Brad Pitt: Furniture Designer for Pollaro!

Brad Pitt has a new gig – furniture designer!

The 48-year-old actor has teamed up with designer Frank Pollaro for a new line of furniture – Pitt-Pollaro.

“I’ve been doodling ideas for buildings and furniture since the early 1990s, when I first discovered [Charles Rennie] Mackintosh and Frank Lloyd Wright,” Brad told Architectural Digest. “Actually, I found Wright in college, when looking for a lazy two-point credit to get out of French. It forever changed my life.”

The pair decided to work together after Frank visited Brad‘s home to install a commissioned piece and saw his sketchbook.

“I asked him, ‘Why don’t we make some of this stuff real?’” Frank said. “Brad said he thought that could be fun.”

The Pitt-Pollaro line will be unveiled at an event in New York that takes place November 13 through 15. If you can’t make it, make sure to check out pitt-pollaro.com on November 11 for the website launch!

    @whamo, tam
    I’m just waiting for him to be bored enough to take an interest in science. Imagine all the diseases he could cure! But knowing him, he’d cross breed the most potent ganja on the planet.

  • tamsin

    @Whamo:

    Hey Wham!

    Spot-on! Why he is a modern-times DaVinci, isn’t he? And he’s done all this being a college dropout who doesn’t know how to read and can barely form a sentence. Imagine if he had actually graduated! :D

    But that’s very true… he can do anything except loving the ho, and let’s not forget… being a father to their children!

    No worries loons, those two items must be in his to-do list. He’ll get there eventually. XD

    Trolls are experts at criticism and whining. But not at accomplishing anything. This should explain why they are fans of Ticky even though they whine that the aren’t

  • tamsin

    @ Megatit, @Whamo

    XD Mega! Knowing him as we do, he’d only breed new types of ganja with the best of intentions! After all, he’s a humanitarian and a philanthropist! He’d want to help cancer victims and accident victims, right loons?

  • well

    Brad designs/sells high-end products like Chanel No. 5. His ex sells low-end products like dumb water.

    I love it when loons don’t bother to read our posts…

    ===================================================
    NO kidding, not only do they read them but they memorise most of it and try to attack you later with one of their” A-HA GOTCHA” moments, which inevitably turn out to be a massive failure of misquoted lies.

    ==================================================
    Tam I’m pretty certain Brad is just waiting for his next movie to come out so he can cross promote not only the movie but his cure for cancer as well.

    He’s going to have to bring out the Perpetual Motion Machine he designed when Heroina’s next movies bombs just to get people to come within a block or two of the School Gym they’ll be showing it at.

  • groundcontrol

    LOL! Seriously anyone who thinks that industrial design cannot also be art has no business ridiculing anyone else for being uneducated. In fact industrial design is taught in fine arts schools. And since when did artists need a degree to be artists?
    .
    Nice to be able to explore your other interests besides your day job. Both Brad and Angelina are setting wonderful examples for their kids of creativity and action.
    .
    Once again the blathering hobnobs of negativity for negativity’s sake.
    .
    And once again a non-secretive project ongoing for years and yet the fake journalists with their pretend sources and pretend insiders knew not one thing about this. Not one thing. Just like the engagement that was already months old when a fan had to be the one who caught sight of the ring days after it was photographed and published.
    .
    LOL!

    Hi Jolie-Pitt Fans!
    -
    I’m glad to see those in affected by the storm are back on-line. I know things are not back to normal and will no doubt take a while, even for those who only sustained minimal damage to their homes. They still have to deal with transpiration, gas as well as other problems.
    -
    The people in those areas have a long, long way to go. I know everyone wants everything done yesterday, but with such a vast area affected and the extent of damage, it’s just not going to happen. I don’t want to be doom and gloom, but that is a reality.
    -
    The authorities are looking to take care of the immediate needs right now. Even getting the word out as to where people can go for help takes a while. We’re talking about millions of people, many without electricity or communication via phones, television and radios.
    -
    This is something this region hadn’t gone through to this extent, not that you can ever be fully prepared for this massive amount of destruction. There are going to be hardships for a very long time to come. It will be particularly hard for the poor and those living from pay check to pay check, which is a lot of the middle class. As always in situations like this, the expectation for recovery will be unrealistic for many, but who can blame them for feeling scared, vulnerable, helpless and at times angry. That’s human nature, even when everything that can be humanly done is being done.
    -
    I hope everyone will take advantage of the various avenues to donate funds for the relief.

    I’m not fond of most modern furnishings, but there are some individual pieces that I like, but wouldn’t fit in with my decor. I like the updated traditional style with some contemporary elements that would complement the look rather than stand out too much. A lot of modern pieces are stark and bold and are meant to be statement pieces.
    -
    Modern furniture in itself isn’t always cost prohibitive for the average person, you just have to know where to shop. There is more than the quality of the material that goes into price. Price depends on the brand name or signature designer that is attached to it, sometimes both of those come into play on one item. There are also other things to consider like whether it’s a one of a kind, limited edition or made to order, those can very extremely expensive.
    -
    Modern items that are massed produced and readily available, my not have the quality of materials of the others, but you can achieve the look in a lot of cases without the great expense.
    -
    I do think both Pitt and Jolie are highly creative and we probably should look forward to both of them doing more things in that vein.

    Why is Angelina’s most dating life before Brad a mystery? Something doesn’t go right here…
    @reply | flag this
    When you compare pittstains dating life to Angelina’s it is a mystery. Pittstain was the original Paris Hilton.

  • Truth

    He dated famous women to get attention ala Paris and dirty women like her. He is a skank. What’s new?

  • Truth

    He is being blasted all over the net. His double bath looks like a bed pan for two. Bwhaha

    ===================================================
    We are accomplished critics and whiners and apparently EXPERTS at it as well. THAT’S quite the accomplishment.

    By the way what the hell does “Ticky” have to do with anything?

    You people are SO obsessed with Ticky it’s funny. Ticky OWNS you people. You can’t even go to bed at night without the chant of ticky ticky ticky echoing through your vapid empty heads.

    Mirror Mirror on th..Ticky…

    Mirror Mirro..Ticky

    Mi…Ticky….

    Bawahaaaaaa!!! What does it feel like Loons to have your heart and soul OWNED by some dippy Actress? Nobody cares about Heroina, her days in the sun..oh wait she’s never seen the sun has she, anyway her days in the spotlight are OVER all over…Ticky ticky ticky.lol!!!

  • tish

    Okay..i know what i want even tho it wouldn’t suit my home,or maybe it would but i could never afford it.

    I love the double-spiral side table finished in 24K gold…Now to me is just gorgeous…..i wannnnnt it.

    Next i would take the marble bathtub for two…love it altho i think it would have to be a little bigger. LOL For all i know about this beautiful art the bathtub maybe is not supposed to be used?…beauty tho in my eyes.

    Now write the bill up and tell me what i owe lol.
    Bet i would have to remorgage the house. EEEK!!

    Brad is a genius, not afraid to try anything. Confidence galore…love his sweet ways too.

    I don’t know how he manages to accomplish all he does. Brad makes 48 hr days into one.

    Wow!! no wonder he and Angie are so well matched.
    I am so glad they met. Didn’t let anybody get in their way. Did their lives the way one should…their way.

    @Truth:
    You know, the only reason I can come up with about their lack of embarrassment is that they’re on drugs, just as much as Pitty is -just look at his face-. I know some of them are senile too. It must be methane gas from their farts, and inhaling mold particles after living in basements for so long. :)

    He sculpts, too. Angie mentioned it in an interview when she was promoting TT. Something about while they were in Venice Brad had gone to a marble quarry and picked out some marble. That little tidbit should send the troll that last little bit over the cliff’s edge…

  • tamsin

    LOL so every time loons and their idols’ ignorance is exposed, a new loon comes forward to claim that she understands everything. I just didn’t know that the one who cleans toilets in courthouses also works in art schools.

    Poor loons, I’ll have to break it down to them as if they were 5 years old.

    Real professional artists have degrees to back up their knowledge, and when I say “artist”, I mean someone other than that idiot Banksy, whom Pitty is clearly in love with. Despite loons’ effort, Pitty could fancy himself an artist, but he can never be called an architect or a designer, because he doesn’t have the academic degree. And no, doodling on rolling papers doesn’t count as “design” or “architecture” . Had he stayed in school long enough, his professors would’ve told him that.

    His sheer ignorance and childish approach shines through in this deeply flawed project. His hired team committed the cardinal sin that industrial design students are warned against. The purpose of designing is creating products that serve human needs. Functionality and ergonomics rule over aesthetics in industrial design. Art is subject to its creators’ view and it doesn’t have to serve a purpose. Designers don’t work “freely” as artists, as they have to condition themselves to customers needs and many specific guidelines. If Pitty wanted to create “art”, this is not what he should’ve hired a team for.

    Whatever the case, real degrees don’t come out of cereal boxes where some loons found their law degrees. Please refrain from further embarrassment by not making more vacuous comments.

    Stay in school loons! :D

    Over 6 Feet!!!! ??? LMFAO good luck, not that I care what height he is and height is hardly what makes him look like a Dbag at times BUT there is NO WAY he’s over 6 feet and I would say in REAL life he’s 5,10 TOPS! Over 6″ BAWAHAAAAAAAAA.

    Hey and guess what, pigs do in-fact fly, there is a pot of gold under every rainbow and Brad actually LOVES Heroina!!!!
