Ghost Buster by Kartell designed by Philippe Starck with Eugeni Quitllet
Corners and curves, straight and sinuous lines play over the surface of the Ghost Buster. With open shelves and four bi-facial legs, the Ghost Buster is the largest plastic monobloc piece of furniture -- just another successful demonstration of Kartell's talent in wielding plastic.
The Ghost Buster evokes the lines of classic furniture and mingles contemporary style together in this unique package.
Few designers have had an impact across the world of design like Philippe Starck. From modern furniture, restaurant interiors, to architecture, the French icon has made lasting impressions to all those exposed to his work. However, his most influential designs have been in the world of staggeringly original mass produced consumer goods. Renowned for his collaboration with the Italian design and manufacturing firm Kartell, Starck's most famous works include the Ghost Chair series, the Bubble Club group, and the Ghost Buster collection. Despite all his past achievements, he is still highly active in the world of modern design.
Creativity and technology, glamour and functionality, quality and innovation: a combination of extraordinary factors together with a strategic vision of distribution has contributed to the lasting success of Kartell. By cultural and entrepreneurial choice, since its origins in 1949 the Italian manufacturer has chosen to characterize itself as the market leader in the production of designer articles which use technology and plastic materials. This choice requires a great understanding of materials and transformation technology. A leader in furniture design, Kartell addresses an international audience with a collection unique in originality, variety, size, and range.
