Design by Philippe Starck.
Made in Italy by Kartell.
Two seemingly incompatible materials, plastic and wood, come together in a harmonious combination that is the Miss Trip Chair. Elegant and easy to assemble, the Miss Trip chair has a plastic seat supported by solid wood legs, held together by a special patented lock mechanism thus avoiding the need for screws or tools. The backrest is grafted onto the seat by the simple application of pressure. The natural elasticity of the material offers a sensation of comfort making Miss Trip ideal for practically any setting in the home or office, as well as for restaurants and cafés.
Material(s): Polypropylene-polyurethane painted seat, beech or cherry multi-layer wood backrest, beech or cherry solid wood legs
