Concept

Starck first designed the Kong barstool for the Chinese restaurant Kong in Paris. The one armed stool was intended to make it easy and graceful for the super model clientele to slither in and out of the bar. Kong requires the hand welding of 24 separate pieces of aluminum, and an additional 8 hours of hand polishing.
