With the glamour of Kartell’s Mademoiselle Chair and the edginess of a rockstar, Kartell introduces Kartell Goes Rock! This extraordinary partnership merges the glamorous and soulful design influence not yet seen by the design world. The American rock icon Lenny Kravitz and the Kravitz Design team has created a collection of six Mademoiselle Armchairs. The Mademoiselle Chair was an original design by the French design icon Philippe Starck.
Designed by Philippe Starck for Kartell in 2002, the Louis Ghost Chair was the first polycarbonate chair to hit the design scene. Since the use of transparency had already arrived some years prior and minimalism was no longer in, Starck had a bit more design freedom. He drew his inspiration from the past, and so emerged the baroque lines of the Louis XV. All of these components flowed together to form a petite version of Louis XV majestic chair.
When choosing to write a blog post about Kartell, my original plan was to choose one item from Kartell and write briefly about the design esthetic and possibly dig up a bit of history around the designer’s influence. However while combing through Kartell’s extensive list of contemporary design products, the idea of choosing just one item became more than a chore. It became evident that each Kartell product showcased exceptional design skills, backed by the influence from experienced and exceptionally skilled designers such as Ron Arad, Ferruccio Laviani, and Philippe Starck.
Yet, if I had to choose one this would be it: the Master’s Chair, winner of the 2010 Good Design Award, featuring a functional, eclectic, easy going style that fits in most places, the kind of chair that could be handed down through generations.
