Kartell Louis Ghost 10th Anniversary!
31 January 2014
The Louis Ghost chair designed by Philippe Starck for Kartell is celebrating its 10th anniversary. Starck took inspiration from the baroque lines of the Louis XV seats and redesigned them in plastic material creating an ultra-contemporary and original design. The Louis Ghost is a fascinating and surprising mingling of the antique and the new. So far over 1.5 million chairs have been sold making the Louis Ghost the most widely sold designer chair in the world. Philippe Starck commented that “The universal success of the Louis Ghost chair does not come from its design but from collective memory. The Louis Ghost chair was produced by our collective subconscious and it is only the natural result of our past, our present and our future.”
