The elegant Dr. No Chair was created by French designer Philippe Starck for the Italian company Kartell.
Based in Milan, the company was founded by Giulio Castelli in 1949, and in 1963 transitioned to making plastic furniture and home furnishings. Castelli's wife, designer and architect Anna Castelli Ferrieri, pioneered the use of plastic in design and was at the forefront of Italian design from the 60s to the 80s. She helped make Kartell a popular brand, well-known internationally and a haven for other aspiring, innovative designers.
One of those is Philippe Starck, one of France's leading architects and designers. His exciting and inspirational creations range from furniture and home decorations to hotels and vehicles. He created the Dr. No Chair in 1996, and it instantly became one of the company's most iconic best sellers. Simple and stylish, the seat is made from smooth batch-dyed polypropylene on sturdy aluminium legs. The chair is 79.5cm high, 51.5cm wide with a depth of 49cm. The seat height is 46.5cm and the chair weighs 4.1 kg. The Dr. No Chair would be at home in any domestic setting, and is also suitable for outdoor use.
