    Lady Gaga "DiscobOllie" Chair

    Lady Gaga is a creative maverick influenced by the same NY grit and glitz that inspires us. Jess has long wanted to collaborate on a piece with her, so we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to get her attention.

    Your pledge will go to the production of a custom discoball-style Ollie Chair in the vein of one of Gaga’s brilliant costumes. We’ll send you process and final product pics as well as include you on the accompanying card we send to LG. Oh, and if anyone has her address, please let us know ;)
