Design Philippe Starck, 2002
Injection-molded polycarbonate
Made in Italy by Kartell

As one of the best-known contemporary designers, Philippe Starck has placed honesty and integrity at the core of his designs producing quality products with longevity & durability.

Starck's work does not concentrate on the creation of provocative and expensive single pieces. Instead his product designs are of usable household items who Starck himself helps to market for mass production. His products are often stylized, streamlined and organic in their look.

The relationship between Kartell and Philippe Starck sometimes becomes a real desire for transgression and challenge, of aesthetic and cultural provocation. The creative genius of the artist and Kartell's unequalled engineering and technological competence have produced, yet again, a cult product. A Louis XV style chair in transparent and colored polycarbonate: revisited baroque ideatype, to astonish, excite and fascinate. Louis Ghost is the most daring example in the world of polycarbonate injection in a single mold.

The creation of this project was an authentic, technological challenge for Kartell, both the particular shape of the medallion-shaped back and the arms presented considerable difficulty. Evanescent and crystalline, like the progenitor of the series, La Marie, Louis Ghost is stable, robust, and resistant to all blows, scratches, and weather conditions. A chair with a strong, charismatic personality of guaranteed aesthetic appeal.
