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.

XO. An old cognac ? "Kisses and hugs"? Look again without applying a known pattern. XO is simply a cross and circle. XO is all about breaking down the familiar and giving it a fresh perspective. By putting together forms that do not seem to go along naturally, they hope to show you that, in fact they do. Like a cross and circle. Simple, graphic - and yet unexpected.
In the beginning, back in 1984, Philippe Starck was raising to stardom; Gérald Mialet's spirits were high. Together, they crossed the line and decide to create a new design house: XO. To quote Starck, "To make a beautiful baby, parents have to be in love". XO is definitely a love affair.View other products from xO Design
