Yep…he was impressed by a fancy chair and just had to meet the designer. That is literally what led Brad Pitt to meet MIT professor and architect Neri Oxman.
Sources say the pair met in November through their collaboration on an unspecified architecture project. It’s a Gemini chaise which is a full-size 3-D–printed piece of “acoustic” furniture that she produced in 2014. He saw a photo and just had to arrange a meeting with the designer.
But when I say “fancy” chair…I mean HIDEOUS. Like..it looks like a giant gross tongue. To be fair, apparently the chair is meant to be discussed and not actually used. And she actually meant it to look like a Space Odyssey 2001 womb galaxy or something? SEE THE VIDEO OF HER EXPLANATION OF IT HERE
Brad is said to be ‘absolutely smitten by’ Oxman, and their “chemistry is off the charts.’
They reportedly ‘got romantically involved almost right away’ after he took in a presentation of 3D-printed chaise lounges she produced according to a source for Us Weekly. She teaches media arts and sciences at the Massachusetts school’s Media Lab.
They reportedly have taken secret trips together and a source says they are “very much a couple”. But a second Pitt source is blowing off the story saying “this is solely a professional relationship [and] there’s nothing more to it as of now.”
Page Six was first to report news of their romance.
