Designed by Philippe Starck in conjunction with Eugeni Quitllet, the Masters chair from Kartell combines the silhouettes from three of the best known chairs of modern times: the Series 7 Chair by Arne Jacobsen, the Tulip Armchair by Eero Saarinen, and the Eiffel Chair by Charles and Ray Eames. The chair is made of batch-colored polycarbonate and supported by four slender legs, but its most notable feature is the back, composed of the curving lines of the three chairs it pays homage to. The chair comes in three colors: white, red, and black. It measures 32.7" tall by 21.3" wide by 21.3" deep with a seat height of 18.5". kartell.it
