Philippe Starck and Eugeni Quitlet’s curvaceous Masters chair pays homage to contemporary design icons Arne Jacobsen, Eero Saarinen and Charles Eames.
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.
The Masters chair was honoured with the prestigious “2010 Good Design Award” presented by the Chicago Athenaeum – Museum of Architecture and Design and the 2013 Red Dot Design Award.
To give the Masters an even more precious, exclusive and sophisticated look, Kartell’s best-seller is given new and surprising metallic finishes.
