Product description

An armchair sculpture, elegant, rigorous, square and yet ethereal and rarefied. The transparency of polycarbonate allows you to see through and enriches the setting without loading it; with elegance it appears and disappears. The evanescence of transparency makes you feel that you are not so much sitting as floating on air.

Material: transparent technopolymer thermoplastic
Size: L.60 cm, D. 57 cm, H. 42/70
Colours: crystal

Concept

The unique monumental pieces of "The Invisibles Collection" presented in 2010 by Tokujin Yoshioka have been transformed today into a series of lighter and more versatile items with lesser thicknesses yet of immutable ethereal fascination. Kartell produces the series using the industrial moulding technique which uses a "pilot mould" which can handle the almost "off the scales" weight and the size and guarantees its stability. The result is in pure Kartell style, the brand that gave birth to the concept of transparency in furnishings and that for more than ten years has been experimenting with innovative approaches to "invisible furniture": a new collection with square elegant shapes that seem to flee the material world and give the impression of being suspended in mid-air.
