A Louis XV style transparent Polycarbonate chair in true Philippe Starck Style. This chair is a classic that has been on my list from day one. It has been featured by Oprah and placed in Italian historic churches. The classic baroque style with a modern flair fits into many settings allowing us to showcase a classic piece of functional art while refraining from covering our backdrop.
I remember the challenges from my first year in the UNCG Interior Architect Department when Patrick Lucas had us draw our chairs. I believe drawing a transparent chair was the worst of the experiences I had through my cards. I think I have better represented the transparency however Kartell does offer this chair in batch dyed polycarbonate as well. Secondly spelling Starck’s name always seems a challenge to new students. We require correct spelling on the chair and designer name on the test and this one trips a lot of people up.
