Although this chair was designed in 2014, it took me a while to discover it, last winter :-), and also to share it with you.
It drew my attention the minute I saw it, not just because I looove colours around me, but also because I thought it could effortlessly tie in a cold, minimal room giving it a special and unique character.
It is a creation of Philippe Starck for Kartell designed with Emilio Pucci’s prints. The theme of this chair was inspired by the Cities of the World line of the famous fashion house. This line is dedicated to the cities with the house’s greatest boutiques. These abstract prints bring out the urban landscape of New York, l’Avenue Montaigne à Paris, la Piazza di Spagna a Roma and the skyscrapers of Shanghai, honoroung in such a way their architecture and uniqueness.
The chair has an upholstered seat with a soft, rounded design on the seatback and arms with either a transparent crystal or a solid black polycarbonate base.
