About the Designer
Philippe Starck France (1949 - )
He remembers having spent his childhood under his father's drawing tables, passing hours stitching, cutting, gluing and grinding, disassembling bicycles, motorbikes and other objects. Endless hours, an entire life spent dismantling and reassembling anything that fell into his hands, reconstructing his surrounding world. He continues to shake the traditions and culture of the world's major cities, with the interior design of the restaurant at Hong Kong's Peninsula Hotel (1994), the Teatron in Mexico (1995), the Delano Hotel a Miami (1995), the Modrian in Los Angeles (1996), the Asia de Cuba restaurant in New York (1997), as well as an entire series of ongoing projects in London and elsewhere. His skill lies in being able to transform instantly the object of the commission into a place filled with charm, pleasure and encounters. He tirelessly modifies everyday life, exalting the deepest roots of existence in his changes. His increasing fascination with life has now led him to create clothes, underwear, footwear, glasses, food, and always with the conviction that his design respects nature and the future of humankind. In the exhibits of museums all around the world, in Paris, New York, Munich, London, Chicago, Kyoto and Barcelona, his work is considered to be that of a master. He has received numerous prizes and awards: designer of the year, the Oscar de luminaire (1980), the title of Officier des Artes et des Lettres (1985), Compasso d'Oro ADI (2001), Show Boats in Munich (2003), and many others.
A creative team of world famous designers including Ferruccio Laviani, Alberto Meda and Philippe Stark, together with Kartell, have developed a special intuition through dialogue and the continual exchange of design ideas. This has served to establish a perfect equilibrium between the designers' project experience, their ability to and the demands of the company.
In its 55 years of existence, Kartell has won prestigious international awards including 9 Gold Compass awards. Today Kartell exports 75 percent of its products to 85 countries worldwide. Lasting success and a daring challenge on the market combine with the continual desire to innovate and reinvent.
Don't buy, common problem in mold design
Interior Designer from Boston, MA
Don't buy, has common mold design defect This is an awful product. Something I would not expect from such a brand name. We ordered both the seats and sofas as a set fora a house I am decorating. The sofas arrived with the seats separated from the sides on one set and from the back on the other. The groove created will just get worse with time, because when we sit on it we see the separation worsening. I have seen this problem reported in other reviews on All Modern (and elsewhere). I don't know if this is a bad batch or an overall design defect. We have ordered the Heller brand for similar outdoor sets on All Modern and did not encounter this problem. Don't buy this product. I am returning it.

Although I do like this sofa it isn't the easiest furniture to have outside. In my house this piece lives on the pation uncovered all year round. It gets pretty hot in the sun and water collects in the seating area. The drainage grove gets filled easily and clogs up, while the side gets very dirty where the water from the seating area runs off. Not the easiest to clean. Gets through the winter with no problems though. I am still trying to find cushions for this piece.

Great sofa for an outdoor look. Had to replace one that was a Terra Cotta coler...be careful..this sofa can crack if left outside in the winter and snow and ice builds up on the seat with freeze and thaw and soon there will be a crack where the back and the seat come together. It very thin and once a crack starts it will just continue to get bigger. I'm going to turn it over so water can't collect there and freeze to develop a new crack. I would hate to have to replace this again.
