Design Philippe Starck & Fugeni Quitllet, 2007
Made in Italy by Kartell
Kartell presents the latest development in transparency: Hi Cut. This new polycarbonate chair offers a perfectly ergonomic seat combining elasticity and solidity. The structural design of the chair, molded in a single piece, is based on contrasting curves and angles: the front legs and front part of the seat are squared, while the rear legs and back have a softer, rounded form, which reverts to the angular design in the upper backrest.
The iridescent vertical lines in the structure of the top that customizes the chair creates seductive plays of light and glints. The veritable rainbow of colors of the top and the possible combinations - 18 in all - give the chair an art deco air and make it extremely eclectic and precious, adding a touch of personality and originality to its surroundings.
As one of the best-known contemporary designers in the world, Philippe Starck has placed honesty and integrity at the core of his designs producing quality products with longevity & durability. He seems to understand, better than others our dreams, our desires, our needs, and our responsibility to the future, as well as the overriding need to respect his fellow citizens by making his work a political and civic act.
Hi Cut is available with three different body colors (transparent, black and white) to be teamed with a range of fluorescent shades. This chair can be stacked 4 high and is suitable for indoor/outdoor use.
