Foremost amongst which, of course, was the brilliant dovetailing of technology and imagination, namely Kartell’s ongoing experimentation with plastics and Philippe Starck’s audacious remaking of an 18th Century design. Still, only a shaman could have foreseen the rapturous 2002 reception accorded the transparent, vaguely Baroque, but decidedly 21st Century Louis Ghost Chair.

Here was a product with the distinct, ethereal form to be simultaneously barely-there and a major presence; an object with the chameleon-like ability to seamlessly adapt to any environment—be it opera house, city sidewalk, or beach—without ever losing its sense of self. It was clear, from the start, that a chair this iconoclastic had something beyond technology and imagination on its side—something that could only be described as magic.

Now, until October 27th, the Kartell Louis Ghost Chair, and everything else Kartell, is on sale at a 20% discount.
