Designer Philippe Starck has transformed plastic into a precious with his glossy gold rendition of his Masters Chair for Kartell. Kartell noted that the re-imagined dining chair draws from “precious, noble and sophisticated material while allowing it to retain its nature as an industrial material.”
“We want to focus attention in coming years even more on quality and preciousness, on the glamor and ‘luxury’ of Kartell plastics, presented with brand-new, exclusive and glossy metal finishes in gold, bronze, silver, gunmetal grey, and copper. Some of Kartell’s best sellers will glisten with these new metallic finishes: Masters, Componibili, Jelly, Matelassé, Shanghai, and Dune.” Kartell explained.
Translation: we’ll be seeing a lot more gold dusted on Kartell classics in the future.
