hi cut side chair

Design Philippe Starck & Fugeni Quitllet, 2007
Batch-dyed polycarbonate
Made in Italy by Kartell

Kartell presents the latest development in transparency: Hi Cut. This new polycarbonate chair offers a perfectly ergonomic seat combining elasticity and solidity. The structural design of the chair, molded in a single piece, is based on contrasting curves and angles: the front legs and front part of the seat are squared, while the rear legs and back have a softer, rounded form, which reverts to the angular design in the upper backrest.

The iridescent vertical lines in the structure of the top that customizes the chair creates seductive plays of light and glints. The veritable rainbow of colors of the top and the possible combinations - 18 in all - give the chair an art deco air and make it extremely eclectic and precious, adding a touch of personality and originality to its surroundings.

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. He seems to understand, better than others our dreams, our desires, our needs, and our responsibility to the future, as well as the overriding need to respect his fellow citizens by making his work a political and civic act.

Hi Cut is available with three different body colors (transparent, black and white) to be teamed with a range of fluorescent shades. This chair can be stacked 6 high and is suitable for indoor/outdoor use.

15" d | 18.9" w | 33.8" h | seat: 19.3" h | stacks 6 high

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.
