Phillipe Starck’s latest — a plastic chair — earned it’s name on the first sketch. Mr. Impossible. The designer said it couldn’t be made. The challenge being the weld. Using existing methods to weld the seat and the legs would create an unsightly seam. Kartell’s engineers had to go the blue water route. The key, a very big laser.
A most inviting chair with an organic design that inspires comfort, neatness and style. It takes on a new technological challenge with highly sophisticated processing methods that consist in the welding of two shells: the transparent structure and the seat, in a full-colored and translucent version, are joined together making them indestructible and guarantee a truly surprising design effect.
