New York, ICFF 2012
“Work in Project”
The Kartell Flagship store in Soho, New York celebrated the US launch of the new designs by Philippe Starck, Tokujin Yoshioka, Piero Lissoni and Vico Magistretti with ‘Work in Project’ – a special installation revealing the genesis of products, from prototype design to industrialisation. The heart of the exhibition was dedicated to Miss Less by Philippe Starck – a chair that takes a sculpture and transforms it into an industrially produced domestic item. The chair has the strength and authority of a primitive shape, a contemporary block fusing glossy appearance and moulded plastic. Ideal for the home or contract furnishing, Miss Less is made up of a comfortable square monolithic base (available in a variety of opaque colours) and a slim transparent polycarbonate backrest.
