Philippe Starck and Eugeni Quitllet pay homage to three different midcentury modern masters in one sleek, versatile indoor-outdoor seat. The Masters Chair (2010) weaves together the back silhouettes of Jacobsen's Series 7Chair, the Eameses' Molded Plastic Chair and Saarinen's Tulip Armchair to create something entirely new. Lightweight and durable, the Masters Chair has a wide, roomy seat, while the back rest allows you to feel supported on a historic level as it echoes the lines of the very first ergonomic innovators. The iconoclastic Starck has been working with Kartell since the 1980s, mixing the company's desire to develop eco-friendly, contemporary plastic furniture with the designer's unmistakably edgy and innovative style. Stackable up to four high. Made in Italy. The Masters chair is a powerful tribute to the three symbolic chairs, re-read and re-interpreted by the creative genius of Starck. The "Series 7" by Arne Jacobsen, the "Tulip Armchair" by Eero Saarinen and the "Eiffel Chair" by Charles Eames interweave their unmistakable silhouettes into a sinuous hybrid giving life to a fusion of original and engaging styles. On its four slim legs, the Masters chair is roomy and comfy. The special finish on the chair makes it feel sensual and velvety to the touch. The back of the chair is naturally its most distinctive feature, characterised by the fullness and empty spaces created by the curvaceous criss-crossing lines of three different backs which descend to meet at the seat edge. The Masters is light, practical and can be stacked and used outdoors as well. The Masters chair was honoured with the prestigious "2010 Good Design Award" presented by the Chicago Athenaeum - Museum of Architecture and Design.
