Made from a single piece of injection-molded polycarbonate, the medallion back could only be produced thanks to accrued knowledge, built on years of developments in plastics manufacturing, smooth and stout, the baroque-style chair is transparent, and coordinates with the Louis Ghost Armchair.
Addressing the design of the collection to the Dallas Morning News, Starck commented That it has a mix of materials and styles based on our shared memories. We all own this piece in a way. The chair is well-balanced, I try to be balanced myself as well. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use in residential and commercial display.
