La Marie - Kartell
La Marie is a 1999 design by Philippe Starck for a transparent polycarbonate chair produced by Kartell. The first in the world with these characteristics, made in a single mold.
La Marie is a revolutionary chair inspired by traditional furnishings, interpreted with an innovative material. Awarded with the Compasso d'Oro.
La Marie combines essential design with a structure of considerable resistance, lightness with transparency that characterizes its unmistakable elegance.
An ingenious technological solution, made of lightness and solidity, the result of careful and meticulous design and research on the material, impact-resistant polycarbonate.
The structure is made of transparent polycarbonate, a plastic material resistant to impact and scratches, durable over time; the surface and structure are not easily deformed. The single body has no joints and does not lend itself to easy breakage.
The four squared legs tapered downwards support a rectangular seat with the riser joined to the backrest supports.
The slightly curved backrest makes the profile elegant and comfortable to support the pelvis and shoulders.
The surface of La Marie is washable with the use of a soft damp cloth, free of abrasive materials and substances.
La Marie is a Kartell product, a leading Made in Italy company founded in 1949. The brand specializes in the use of various types of plastic materials.
Philippe Starck is a reference figure of international design in recent decades, the undisputed protagonist of design since the end of the 20th century. From his studio come countless projects from the most varied sectors and production areas that often receive the consent of the public and professionals.
La Marie is the first of a series of transparent seats produced by Kartell designed by Philippe Starck. The idea is to create a shape built with clean lines, enhanced by the lightness given by the transparency.
In addition to the crystal version, in transparent polycarbonate, La Marie by Kartell is also produced in three fluorescent colors: violet, light yellow and light orange.
