Kartell Generic C Armchair 2pcs Philippe Starck

The Generic C Chair is a Philippe Starck designed armchair from Kartell. It’s his interpretation of what the bare elements of what a chair “for all people” should contain. The back/ side profile echo the timeless elegance of the Chair No. 14 (Komsunstuhl Nr.14), a classic chair designed by Michael Thonet in 1859 which still graces the cafés, restaurants and dining rooms of the most sophisticated cities of Europe and the world after many decades, and is still recognisable to this day. As its name suggests Generic is a dining chair which lends itself to any application – be it a home, cafe, restaurant, public space or even in your garden. As part of a ‘Generic’ family it comes in a selection of colours, can stack up to 6 chairs high (great for storage) and represents fantastic value for an Italian made Philippe Starck design.

Generic is an ambitious project of deeply ethical connotations, in which new objectives are defined for contemporary design to fulfil and creativity is seen in the light of a public service. Thanks to a creative concept by Philippe Starck, Kartell identifies the “generics” of community seating. Hence the creation of Generic C, the chair designed for bars, restaurants and places of entertainment, available in six different matt and soft touch finishes: the seatback is high, the armrests generously proportioned and the design is functional.”
