GENERIC.C (KARTELL)

GENERIC.C, design by Philippe Starck with A. Maggiar

“GENERIC are explorations : the wish to open up, to clean up and reach the core in order to identify and extract the minimum, this minimum thing which deserve to exist and from which the true beauty comes from. GENERIC chairs are square roots, minimums, they are structurally timeless and elegant because they are indivisible.”

“GENERIC.C chair –as in Café- explores the cafés’ furniture. Everyday, millions of people sit on those chairs which shapes change and sometimes become weird. GENERIC.C is the functional structure, the generic version, which goes towards the essence of this type of furniture.” Ph.S
