This giant Philippe Starck Sofa of polycarbonate is sleek and stylish for any interior. The massive size is a technological design feat to celebrate 15 in the material for Kartell and Starck.
The 2014 edition of salone del mobile marks an important anniversary for Kartell; 15 years of transparency, research and experimentation in injection-molding with transparent polycarbonate in a single mould. since first introducing ‘la marie’ by philippe starck in 1999, the ‘uncle jack’ sofa from 2014 highlights the most outstanding example of this technology: a seating surface measuring 190 cm and weighing 30 kilograms in just one piece of polycarbonate. besides ‘uncle jack’, the range also includes the ‘uncle jim’ armchair, with an elegant high back construction, and the ‘uncle jo’ small armchair in the same material.
