Mademoiselle Printed Chair by Kartell designed by Philippe Starck
This is an innovative design for an armchair because of its clever and novel combination of two aesthetic qualities: the structure is an injected mold of transparent polycarbonate upon which are placed four fasteners, allowing for a sturdy, yet flexible fit for a seat made of expanded polyurethane. The Mademoiselle Chair's advanced technology consists in the use of unusually thick, soft fabric for the seat, which provides for maximum comfort and enhanced aesthetic quality. It boasts a harmonious design and extraordinary comfort. The Mademoiselle Chair is available in a Black or Crystal colored frame with various pattern options, including a special edition animal print by Dolce & Gabbana.
First presented in 2007, the Mademoiselle Chair Dolce & Gabbana animal print provides unconventional and unmistakable luxurious style that combines the innovation of Kartell seating with the luxury of this designer label. This precious print customizes the chair and has become the emblem of the label recalling the warm and embracing sensuality of Dolce & Gabbana.
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 Mademoiselle Chair. 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.
