A Kartell Master Piece

Categories: Furniture + Lighting


“We weren’t born just today. There have been masters before us,” said Philippe Starck in 2009, explaining the design of his Masters chair for Kartell. Morphing the shapes of 3 celebrated 20th Century chairs—Arne Jacobsen’s Series 7 Chair, the Saarinen Tulip Armchair, and the Eiffel Chair by Charles Eames—Starck created a distinctive silhouette of his own. Crafted from polypropylene, linear and lightweight, and suitable for both indoor & outdoor use, the beauty of the Kartell Masters Chair lies in its ability to invoke the past while remaining undeniably a chair of the present.
