Couture has clean and rounded lines for which Philippe Starck is well known. At first glance, this new chair appears to be a regular plastic shell on a metal frame chair, but it comes with an interesting twist. This is achieved by using a new technique known as heliotransfer that allows patterns to be printed on plastic. Starck's idea of this design is to move away from the minimalist era. He explicitly makes reference to the fashion industry in its chic and frivolous dimension. Couture is living proof that the worlds of design and fashion are not so far apart and can blend successfully together. Available in three tweed patterned colors.

Designer: Philippe Starck
Born in Paris in 1949, Philippe Starck is one of the most original designers and architects of the last three decades. Having designed furniture, hotels, mega-yachts, lighting and many others throughout his career, Starck has become a fixture in modern design. Not only does Starck create beautifully unconventional designs, he creates a finished product whose main purpose is to function well before anything else.
Philippe Starck has obtained many important acknowledgements, including the Grand Prix National de la Creation industrielle and the Honor Award of the American Institute of Architects. In Starck's own words, "subversive, ethical, ecological, political, humorous... this is how I see my duty as a designer."View other products by Philippe Starck
