Foremost amongst those factors, of course, was the brilliant dovetailing of technology and imagination, namely Kartell’s ongoing experimentation with plastics and Philippe Starck’s audacious remaking of an 18th Century design and style. Nevertheless, only a shaman could have foreseen the rapturous 2002 reception accorded the single-piece, vaguely Baroque, but decided 21st Century Louis Ghost Chair.
A chair with the distinct, ethereal kind to be both barely there and a main presence, with the chameleon-like capacity to flawlessly adapt to any environment—be it opera home, city sidewalk, or beach—without ever losing its sense of self, has anything much more than technology and imagination on its side. Something that may relatively be described as magic.
Now, till October 27th, the Kartell Louis Ghost Chair, and every little thing else Kartell, can be had for 20% less.
