Design by Philippe Starck with Lenny Kravitz.
Made in Italy by Kartell.
"Haute couture meets rock and roll."
American rock icon Lenny Kravitz, with his Kravitz Design team, has teamed up with über designer Philippe Starck to re-imagine Kartell's exclusive Mademoiselle Chair in exotic combinations of fabrics and varying textures, including python print, faux fur and leather.
Mirroring the spirit of the American superstar, the Mademoiselle Kravitz Chair combines the elegance of the armchair's haute couture with the wild rock mood of the fabrics selected: grey faux fur with a grey and black python-printed fabric or black interwoven leather with a black faux fur front. Both versions are available with a transparent or black frame that provides solid support and comfort with its polycarbonate structure and polyurethane foam seat.
Material(s): Transparent or batch-dyed polycarbonate, polyurethane, modacrylic faux fur, faux leather, viscose/cotton blend fabric
