Magical colour and transparency

Ninth Compasso D’Oro

The vase-shaped stools that astonished and thrilled even the strictest minimalists at the last Furniture Fair are finally available. Once again, Starck’s creative genius and Kartell’s technology have given life to a revolutionary and intriguing project: La Bohème is a collection of stools which recall the form of precious amphorae. There are three of them: LaBohème1, LaBohème2 and LaBohème3, each one evoking a different icon of the vase object, and providing a delicate and precious image but also a stable and functional chair. A single exclusive technology, prepared for the first time in the design sector by Kartell, has allowed a completely clear collection of stools to be produced, which have a remarkable aesthetic impact but are quite durable. The Bohème stools can go anywhere, in the living room or in the garden, terrace or kitchen. Free of ordinary schemes and definitions, they provide an exquisite flash of light anywhere.
