Design Story

The interior architect and product designer Philippe Starck designed the universal La Bohème stool for the company Kartell. Presenting the form of a precious antique vase gives the Kartell appears as a tender and delicate object, not least because of the decision to produce it in transparent or coloured polycarbonate. Yet despite all appearances the La Bohème stool is an exceptionally stable and durable seat, which can also be used as a side table or simply as a decorative element in every living area. For more than 50 years Kartell has produced designer furniture made of plastic and has established an enviable roster of co-operations with important international designers. The result is an extensive portfolio of functional products, each of which presents an individuality of character that transforms them into works of contemporary art.
