Philippe Starck takes plastic to soaring new levels with his polypropylene designs that defy and push the boundaries of mass plastic furniture production. Starck boasts a number of firsts. He created the first polypropylene chair in 1988; the world’s first polypropylene-moulded chair in 1999 and the first single mold sofa, made completely of polycarbonate in 2014.
His work may now be viewed in the recently-renovated Kartell Museum, where the plastic manufacturer Kartell also houses other designs in their portfolio of work.
The Sir Gio table pictured below embodies his attention to keeping his designs transparent and minimalistic. Below you’ll find more visual examples of Starck’s craft.
