Phillipe Starck - Driade Chairs sculpted to the body

Modern Furniture can be beautiful and comfortable. Phillipe Starck has released a new chair that brings light and openess in a form that is as pleasing to the eye as it is to the gluteous maximus. - Ecomanta

In life, there are things which are real, but there are also reflections. Ring is just a reflection of a chair. That’s amply sufficient.

- Philippe Starck for Driade, 2009.

Philippe Starck and Eugeni Quitllet’s Ring chair for Driade, comes with a red, black or silver polipropylene base and a trasparent, colorless polycarbonate back which extends from the front two legs and wraps around the person sitting in it.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that the Driade Armchair from the Out-In range by Philippe Starck is out of this world. It’s striking, unearthly appearance belies a wonderfully practical armchair, suitable for both inside and outside. A high backrest provides comfort. The chair stands solidly on four tapering legs. The generously sized seat creates a nest for the user, inviting them to curl up securely inside. Clean, uncomplicated lines characterise the Driade – and are typical of Philippe Starck’s designs. For this chair, he has teamed with Italian manufacturer Driade and Eugeni Quitllet. Made from adaptable high-end polyethylene, the Driade chair’s space-age metallic colour scheme is universal-neutral… meaning it will fit into any existing decor beautifully.
