Philippe Starck for Kartell Louis Ghost Chair

Product information

Created by innovative architect and product designer Philippe Starck, the Ghost chair has become a modern cult classic. The Baroque style, with its flamboyant flourishes, is boiled down into one single mould of polycarbonate.

Polycarbonate is highly durable, wipe-clean and practical. Up to 7 of these chairs can be stacked.

Philippe Starck is a legend of modern design whose repertoire has left permanent mark by producing some of the iconic shapes of the 20th century through his bold reworkings of everyday objects - from interiors  to mass-produced consumer goods such as toothbrushes, chairs, and even houses.

Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful chair Beautiful looking chair, fabulous quality, looks really impressive. I've used it with the JL Frost Console table as a dressing table and chair in my dressing room. Looks very glamorous and modern. Wouldn't hesitate to reccommend. 16 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Too beautiful & stylish Looks great in my new build open plan living/kitchen room (looks more spacious) I bought 2 of these to go with 2 Victoria ones using a wooden dining table. Comfortable, light weight, stackable and so cool. Beware not to have any metal clothing near them (incl Jeans). Use a microfiber cloth to clean them. So happy I bought these. 29 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Thrilled to bits! Ordered 6 of these chairs after reading the reviews. They are beautiful and so comfortable. They perfectly compliment our glass topped table and make the dining room look incredibly spacious. Fantastic service from John Lewis too - they arrived the day after I ordered them. 04 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stunning chairs Ive just had two of these black chairs delivered today to match my recently purchased John Lewis mystic square glass top table and they look totally stunning together. The chairs fit perfectly on opposite sides of the table and meet together underneath creating a beautiful symmetrical shape. The chairs look and feel high quality and are very comfortable too. Money well spent - I'm really delighted with them. 22 May 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Victoria to small we purchased 4 of the Victoria Ghost chairs & 2 Louis Ghost chairs, had to return the Victoria's as smaller than anticipated & replaced with 4 more Louis's .with 6 of these chairs around a glass table the result is stunning. 22 February 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Elegance in minimal space I chose this "ghost chair" for small bedroom where a large solid chair would have given a cluttered appearance. The chair more than lived up to my expectations.Not only is it a great example of Philippe Starck's design and an elegant piece of furniture in its own right, this transparent chair creates an image of space and light - exactly the effect I was aiming for. I am delighted with my purchase. 16 January 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Statement chair Totally love it!!! This is a totally amazing chair! Surprisingly comfortable and looks sensational... I am really pleased with it and will be adding to it with others! It had some damage on arrival which was disappointing due to the price of the chair, but John Lewis rectified this quickly and this has not spoilt my satisfaction with the product in the slightest. Maybe more care checking before dispatch-just in case! 01 January 2012
