Design by Philippe Starck.
Made in Italy by Kartell.
Kartell presents the latest evolution in transparency, Hi-Cut, a chair offering perfect ergonomic seating combined with flexibility and solidity. The changing vertical stripes on the chair top's structure add an attractive play of light and reflections. With its minimal and clean design, this chair is reminiscent of an art deco mood made eclectic and precious, bringing a touch of personality and originality to any ambiance.
The design of the chair's structure, made in a single mold, plays on curves and angles: the front legs are square, as is the front part of the chair, while the back legs and the backrest have a smoother, rounded line which becomes sharper at the top of the backrest. Suitable for indoor/outdoor use.
Material(s): Transparent or batch-dyed black or white polycarbonate
