Design by Philippe Starck and Eugeni Quitllet, 2010.
Made in Italy by Kartell.
Standing on four slim legs, the Masters Chair is roomy and comfortable. The back of the chair is characterized by fullness and empty spaces created by curvaceous crisscrossing lines of three different backs which descend and merge into the edge of the seat.
The Masters Chair pays homage to three contemporary design icons through a fusion of styles. Referencing the silhouettes of Arne Jacobsen's Series 7, Eero Saarinen's Tulip Armchair and Charles Eames' Eiffel Chair, the Masters Chair is an engaging and sinuous hybrid.
Suitable for indoor/outdoor use and stackable 4 units high. The Masters Chair is available in a variety of color options.
Suitable for indoor/outdoor use.

A Topic of Conversation
By: Ricardo P., Designer (Brooklyn, NY)
I know have two Kartell Masters Chairs. One in the bedroom, that goes perfectly with our bedroom choices. The second is in the living room, and often needed as a spare dining room chair, for larger party's. Each time we have people over, they all want to know more about the chair, its various shapes, and the designer. I love it when the dinner conversation concentrates on this chair and leads into a wider discussion on design. As a chair, it's a beautiful piece of construction and design. Effortless in manufacture, it's sturdy, comfortable, and supports you wonderfully. Light enough to lift with one finger, it has a weight of superiority in both our rooms, and we love them. I would recommend one, or two, as a statement piece, or just as a beautiful piece of furniture everyone will want to know more about.

Very stylish and comfortable chair!
By: HappyCustomer, Homeowner
We ordered 8 chairs and are very happy with their style and comfort. One of the chairs was damaged in transit, but customer service immediately sent a replacement and also arranged for a UPS pick up for the damaged item. We've ordered multiple items from yliving and have always been pleased with the products and the wonderful customer service.

I'd seen these chairs in Europe. They are a great design and wanted to try one. It fits perfectly here and I plan to get a couple more. YLiving is the convenient way to get the one you want.
Its a nice product.

I was vary happy with the quality of the product but very un happy with Kartel. I am an interior designer and I am used to being able to purchase products Kartel from a source that will let me take a sample to show my clients for approval. There was no rep so I ordered them sight unseen, the client felt that the orange was too "dirty" and that she would rather have it in black. I was unable to exchange the orange for black so I ordered new black chairs and I am now stuck with the orange chairs.
Great design and comfort
By: L.R., Homeowner (Dallas, Texas)
My husband and I are using these chairs in our dining room with a glass table. The statement that they make is amazing. The design is terrific and the comfort level is great. The YLiving website is so easy to use. And Luke in customer service was wonderful to work with.
I love it,

my new Master's chair sits next to my 2 Barcelona's and fits in as if they are in the same league. I'm very pleased..and, it's comfort is as good as it looks.
An object d'art
By: Pretz, Homeowner (San Francisco)
I was a little hesitant about the comfort level of these chairs as they were not even available at the local Kartell store so I couldn't try them before I ordered them. I can assure you that these chairs are very comfortable indeed. I thought I might need a cushion but it is not necessary. The material is sturdy but not "hard" to sit and feel. It is over 22 inch wide so even "larger" people will find it comfortable. And great-looking is an understatement for this chair. I have six of these and when I put them in a row along the wall or just stack them up (another great feature), they look like an art installation. The key to the beauty of this chair is that it doesn't really have a "back" or "armrest" as most chairs do. The continuous lattice structure that forms the "back" and "armrest" is both functional AND sculptural that this chair really is able to embrace the essence of the 3 classic forms and deliver a new chair that is both artistic and practical at the same time.

I bought two of these as extra chairs for a screen porch. They get lots of compliments. Very well made. Fairly comfortable to sit in. And the plastic feels like it has a little give in it that is comfortable.
