masters stacking chair 2 pack

Design Philippe Starck & Eugeni Quitllet, 2010
Recycled thermoplastic technopolymer
Made in Italy by Kartell

Philippe Starck pays homage to three contemporary design icons and, through a fusion of styles, adds it all up to a "stylistic sum" - the Masters chair. Re-interpreted in a space age key, the 7 Series by Arne Jacobsen, the Tulip Armchair by Eero Saarinen and the Eiffel Chair by Charles Eames weave into a captivating and sinuous hybrid.

On its four slim legs, the Masters seat is roomy and comfy. The back of the chair is its most fascinating feature, of course, characterised by the fullnesses and empty spaces created by the curvaceous criss-crossing lines of three different backs descending to meet together at the seat.

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.

Masters chair is made from recycled thermoplastic technopolymer with a mineral fill and soft-touch treatment. It is available in a variety of colors, is suitable for indoor or outdoor use and can stack up to four chairs. They are sold in packs of two chairs of the same color.

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.
The Kartell image and history are best described through the company's products. The development, corporate strategies, attention paid to technology and design can be appreciated by observing the products Kartell has produced. Kartell products express the language and the atmosphere of the period in which they were created and at the same time they are "contemporary articles". They incorporate many values and messages and this is why they have become an integral part of our design world.
