The awarded French designer, architect and creator Philippe Starck creates projects that inevitably capture our attention. From architectural complex projects, to design and even luxury furniture, the French mastermind aims for a mix of avant-garde aesthetic without lacking the important functional comfort, that’s Philippe Starck way! A picture is worth more than a thousand words, and to prove what we said, CovetED has prepared the best examples through a selection of marvellous dining chair designs.

Designed by Starck himself, the Master dining chair is one of Kartell’s most successful pieces of furniture. Supported on slender legs, the back shapes of the 3 original designs are created by solid lines and voids which flow down and join together along the perimeter. The finishes are available in black, white, grey, mustard, rusty orange or sage green.

Colours always play a very important role in an interior design project. The Dr. Yes dining chair was created by Starck in cooperation with Eugeni Quitllet for Kartell in the year 2009. This chair’s character is stylistically unique and is very durable thanks to its materials. Dr. Yes was predominantly conceived for conceptual spaces, yet wonderfully works for private spaces as well.

Obtained from the ancient lost wax casting technique, the Miss Lacy dining chair represents and makes accessible a baroque lace by transforming it into an embracing shell. Characterized by the expertly pierced shiny mirrored stainless steel, it compares more to a jewel than to a functional object. The tapered legs are then welded to the shell, once polished, and the final result is a perfect monoblock.

There’s nothing more frightening than having to sit on a dining chair that looks stylish but feels uncomfortable. It’s certainly a trick. But the Ghost dining chair has an understated elegance that’s a timeless treat, based on a Louis XV style armchair. It can be the focal point or subtly blend in, or even camouflage themselves, depending on the way they’re styled.

Here’s the true definition of a fashion chair design. The collection includes a series of floral fantasies and signed by prestigious Italian designer fabrics. Rosita Missoni for Missoni chose Vevey, a kaleidoscope of flowers available both in shades of red and ochre tones, and the elegant Cartagena with its black and white flower graffiti. The Mademoiselle armchair is ideal for any dining room design.
