The Liliane and David M. Stewart Program for Modern Design, 2011.47
Starck gave this chair the name Masters because its back simultaneously silhouettes three iconic chairs by midcentury modern designers: Eero Saarinen’s Pedestal chair, Ray and Charles Eames’s “Eiffel” chair and Arne Jacobsen’s Series 7 chair. The combination yields a unified, integrated design similar to a Thonet bentwood chair.
Starck collaborated with Catalan designer Eugeni Quitllet on this lightweight, indoor/outdoor stackable chair, which is sold in pairs and is available in six colors.
