Driade Lou Reed Armchairs Philippe Starck
Driade Lou Reed Armchairs Philippe Starck – forms part of the collection for Paris’s Royal Monceau hotel, refurbished last October 2010 by the designer and the past scene of a chance encounter with Lou Reed.
Organic outline, perhaps anthropomorphous, conceived with leather directly fixed on a fiberglass skeleton. the armchair is entirely covered in leather and hand-stitched. the unexpected comfort is given by its perfect ergonomics.
Use indoor only.
Size: H 120 cm, Seat H 42 cm, W 70 cm, Dept 76 cm.
Philippe Starck is an internationally acclaimed french creator, designer and architect. his profound comprehension of contemporary mutations, his determination to change the world, his anticipatory concern for environmental implications, his love of ideas, his desire to defend the intelligence of usefulness – and the usefulness of intelligence – have accompanied one iconic creation after the other. from everyday products such as furniture and lemon squeezers, to revolutionary mega-yachts, individual windmills, electric bikes or hotels and restaurants that aspire to be wondrous, stimulating and intensely vibrant places. this untiring and rebellious citizen of the world, who considers it his duty to share his ethical and subversive vision of a fairer planet, creates unconventional places and objects whose purpose is to be “good” before being beautiful. Philippe Starck and his wife, jasmine, mostly live on an airplane or in “middles of nowhere”.
