Design by Philippe Starck, 2000.
Made in Italy by Kartell.
The mass-tinted polypropylene Bubble Club sofa pioneered a new concept in furniture accessories: the industrial sofa made entirely of plastic. The keen vision of Philippe Starck, along with technology and research made it possible for Kartell to mass produce what was traditionally handmade. Bubble Club is a roomy two-seater sofa, characterized by the soft contours of its armrests in contrast with the sleek lines of its backrest. A fun and whimsical addition to the living room, gathering space, or backyard. Bubble Club is perfectly suitable for the outdoors and ideal for furnishing gardens, pool sides and patios. Available in a variety of colors.
Kartell plastics are recyclable, and plastic components of Kartell products have a clearly printed universal Recycling Identification Mark.
Winner of Italy's prestigious Compasso d'Oro Award, 2001.
Suitable for outdoor use.
Material(s): Smooth batch-dyed polyethylene
I love my Bubble Club Sofa!
By: Gothgirl, Homeowner (San Francisco)
This is the coolest sofa. It looks great in my ultra modern living room. Yes, it is outdoor furniture but it works beautifully with my decor. I have had my eye on this for a long time and when YLiving had the sale on Kartell, it was my time to move on it. I am very pleased with my purchase and my shopping experience online with YLiving. I got the zinc white color and now I am eyeballing the Bubble Chair to match my sofa.
Definitely not run of the mill!

We wanted something not too conventional for the back porch of our colonial. And we love the way this sofa looks (in white). But it certainly needs cushions to achieve an acceptable comfort level. Also we're not fans of the way rain water pools in the seat. Style somewhat trumps ergonomics with the bubble sofa but not in a way that our comfort focused household can't live with.
Bubble Club furniture rocks!
