Design by Patrick Jouin.
Made in Italy by Kartell.
Thalya boasts a surprisingly simple design with a strong graphic impact that captures the onlooker's attention. It is a transparent or colored polycarbonate chair made using gas injection molding. Its particular manufacturing process allows the surface to be incised with a pattern of irregular vertical and horizontal stripes covering the entire back of the seat and the backrest. The lines are gentle, with rounded corners, creating an "almost feminine" form. Suitable for indoor/outdoor use. Thalya Chairs sold as a Set of 2.
Material(s): Transparent or mass-colored polycarbonate
