Philippe Starck for Kartell Masters Chair, Black

Product information

Designed by Philippe Starck in collaboration with Eugeni Quitllet, Masters is a hybrid of 3 iconic Kartell designs: the Series 7 by Arne Jacobsen; the Tulip armchair by Eero Saarinen and the Eiffel chair by Charles Eames.

Masters is roomy and comfortable. Supported on slender legs, the back shapes of the 3 original designs are create by solid lines and voids which flow down and join together along the perimeter.

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 3.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by thrilled with the look Although a little higher than the average chair these offer sturdy comfort at our small bistro type table whilst providing an eye catching look. 13 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cool chairs! Having looked for ages for some chairs that would make a balcony stand out, these came along. They are a little expensive, but you get what you pay for in terms or design, finish and impact. 03 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Even nicer that expected! Ordered these online to have for extra outdoor chairs in summer, however they are so lovely I can't even begin to think about leaving them outside in the rain! Truly stylish, very different and to cap it all, they are really comfortable. Also, in case you're wondering, they do not look "plasticy" at all!!! They look just as good indoors as they do outdoors - I'm delighted!' 03 April 2014
