Stunning simplicity from Starck

    Following several launches with Italian contemporary furniture brand Kartell, renowned French Designer Philippe Starck has put his unique stamp on a brand-new seating collection named Venice.

    Instantly recognisable, Starck’s previous work with Kartell includes creative designs such as ‘One More Please’, the Ghost collection and, perhaps more recognisable to high-street consumers, the Masters range.

    To celebrate the launch of the Venice chair; Kartell has travelled to the Italian city that inspired its design. The pieces of furniture are the real stars of the tour. The Venice seats – situated, ironically, in a gondola – play with the hues of the brightly-coloured facades of the Burano houses while the Starck-designed Cara armchair offers a unique reading space overlooking the canal in the Acqua Alta bookshop.

    Hosting the Kartell creations are some of the most iconic buildings and venues in Venice, including the Caffè Florian, Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo and Palazzina Grassi, as well as the enchanting Piazza San Marco and the striking Palazzo Ducale.

    Central to the project, the Venice chair is a tribute that interprets the aristocratic mood of this city, blending discreet style with extreme comfort. The chair itself is fabricated using a complex injection moulding technique that makes it possible to accommodate the silhouette of the elemental design yet concurrently guarantee stability.
