We can’t believe it’s been ten years since Philippe Starck’s beautiful, iconic, shocking, wonderful, strange, awesome and beautiful Louis Ghost Chair was designed for Kartell, and it’s still as powerful as it was when it was first debuted! Since the French designer came up with it in 2002, the Ghost Chair has sold over 1.5 million chairs, meaning it’s one of the most wildly successful and sellable original pieces of furniture design ever. Made of single-injected polycarbonate plastic, it’s one of the most recognizable transparent pieces of furniture out there today. And frankly? We adore it. (And will probably continue adoring it for another 10 + years). We love the video Kartell put out to commemorate the anniversary.
We have to ask…where were you when you first spotted the Ghost Chair?!
