This beautiful Super Impossible Armchair was created - unmistakably - by Philippe Starck in collaboration with Eugeni Quitllet for the manufacturer Kartell.
Believe the unbelievable. The Mr Impossible chair is back, in a stunning new incarnation as the Super Impossible Armchair - with the aid of two design superheroes. Raised in the virtuosic design-scape of Barcelona, Quitllet seems an obvious collaborator for the world-famous Starck, and both have risen to the creative challenge for Kartell. Founded in 1949 and now one of the legends of Italian design, the company has made its name by transforming the functional and every-day into objects of luxury and desirability.
The Super Impossible Armchair captures all the trademark elegance of its original inspiration, but it gives this cult favourite a fresh new twist while keeping the distinctive egg-shaped curve of the seat. Constructed from two shells of laser-shaped polycarbonate, there's a comfortable solidity to this light and elegant design. Perfect as part of a modern setting around a dining or lunch table and comfortable enough to be a reading chair, this is a modern classic that needs to be on display. The chair measures 55 x 84 x 54 cm.
