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 Black or White and sold as a set of 4.
The Masters Chair is the winner of the Good Design Award 2010 and the Gold Dot Award 2013.
Suitable for indoor/outdoor use.

Kartell Masters Chair - comfort/style
By: Howard111, Homeowner (Plymouth, MA)
For a plastic chair, it is very sturdy unlike most plastic chair. Easy to clean and great style. I recommend it.
Very attractive design, comfort so-so.
By: Richard H., Architect (Newton, MA)
We bought 4 of these for our own kitchen. The design is striking, and the concept or re-stating 4 classic chairs is interesting. Not everyone finds them comfortable, however. Problem areas are the raised ridges on the sides of the seat that are a bit uncomfortable for all but narrow rear ends, and the tendrils of the backs , which in some positions dig into your bones. We're also finding that the white finish marks up easily, and they are hard to remove with the limited cleaning agents recommended.
Love these chairs - simple classic, yet interesting design.
