Design by Philippe Starck.
Made in Italy by Kartell.
This classic Louis XV was reinvented by Phillippe Starck in 2002. Sold in packs of 4 chairs to offer set pricing on quantities used for entertaining and in group settings. A comfortable armchair in transparent and colored polycarbonate, it is the quintessence of baroque revisited to dazzle, excite and captivate. Louis Ghost is the most daring example of the world of injected polycarbonate in a single mold. Despite its evanescent and crystalline appearance, Louis Ghost is stable and durable, shock and weather resistant.
Also sold as a single chair: Louis Ghost Chair. Louis Ghost Chairs are stackable to six chairs high.
Material(s): Single piece injection-molded transparent or batch-dyed polycarbonate
Great chairs, not for dining chairs though

I bought a set of 6 chairs to go with a wooden dining table-cool chairs but not with that table,way too casual. From the back look like plastic chairs. Fairly sturdy, pretty, but maybe as a desk or side chair.

Good quality, color and more comfortable then they look.
