Design Philippe Starck, 2003
Polycarbonate & upholstery
Made in Italy by Kartell

Philippe Starck and kartell team up for an innovative project for an armchair with a clever and first-ever combination of two aesthetic qualities: solidity and space, materiality and transparency. The polycarbonate structure offers a solid and elegant support for a soft seat in fabric-covered expanded polyurethane. Mademoiselle represents the perfect match, with a unique solution, of transparency and softness, aesthetics and color, delicacy of appearance and practical strength.

As one of the best-known contemporary designers in the world, Philippe Starck has placed honesty and integrity at the core of his designs producing quality products with longevity & durability.

Kartell’s most “à la mode” armchair now has a wider range of upholstery to choose from. The collection boasts three prints chosen by Rosita Missoni: "Vevey", a cheery kaleidoscope of flowers in red or burnt tones, and "Cartagena" with elegant white and black flower graffiti. Novelties in 2010, Moschino presents three versions: "Sketches" is the result of a patchwork of original illustrations by Franco Moschino; "Margherite" is a floral carpet on a black background which flows from the seat up onto the back and "Cuori" is Moschino's iconic black and white hearts print.

The frame is offered in either transparent or black and the seat is available in a vast range of colors and fabrics.

22" w | 21" d | 31.5" h | seat: 18.1" h

Philippe Starck

Paris-born Philippe Patrick Starck (b. 1949) has a wide range of design, but is very well known for his consumer goods and interiors. He was educated in Paris at the École Camondo and founded his first design firm, which specialized in inflatable objects, in 1968. The next year, he became art director of his firm along with Pierre Cardin. He has worked both independently as an interior designer and as a product designer since 1975. After designing the private apartment interiors for French President François Mitterrand in 1982, his career began to climb significantly. In 1986 he joined Domus Academy Department of Design as an associate lecturer. Two of Starck's famous designs include stylized toothbrushes (1989) and a sleek juicer dubbed the Juicy Salif created for Alessi in 1990. The Juicy Salif has become an affordable and popular cult item.
Kartell's image and its 59 years of history are described through the company's products. The development, the corporate strategies, the attention the company has paid to technology, the project and the design can be appreciated by observing the products Kartell has produced. Kartell's products express the language and the atmosphere of the period in which they were created, but at the same time, they are "contemporary articles," they incorporate many other values and messages and this is why they have become an integral part of our domestic design world.
