Victoria™ Transparent Chair Ghost - Clear Chair : Kartell


Victoria Ghost: La Vita Fantastica di Plastica Trasparente!
We had ourselves a little photo shoot with one of our favorite chairs: the transparent Victoria Ghost Chair designed by Philippe Starck for Kartell.  Classic lines and a rounded backrest show the historical origins of this chair, whilst its robust form is made from transparent polycarbonate. Scratch and weather resistant, this comfortable chair offers versatility and a unique design. The Victoria Ghost chair was designed by Philippe Starck for Kartell in Italy. Victoria Ghost is a modern interpretation of classic Louis XV-style chairs. Philippe Starck deliberately designed this chair with a smaller than usual seating area; the seating surface measures only 15" wide. This may be small for people with overly well-endowed behinds, yet, it is perfectly fine for most of us.

Designed by innovative architect and designer Philippe Starck for Kartell, the Victoria Ghost Chair has become a modern cult classic. The elegant Neoclassical style with slim oval back has been produced from a single injection mould of crystal-clear or solid colour polycarbonate. Stable, comfortable, durable and weather resistant this chair has an abundance of charm and will fit into any style of surrounding.




The Kartell Victoria Ghost Chair is a chair born of classic Baroque lines whose rounded backrest recalls the shape of antique medallions, whilst the seat is linear and geometric. Made from a single molding of crystal-clear polycarbonate, which has a transparent, 'ghost-like' appearance, hence its name. Polycarbonate is highly durable and easily wipe-cleans. This chair is stable, comfortable, robust, scratch resistant and weather resistant. Once more we find a chair created thanks to technological know-how which Kartell has amassed over the years to create articles which have made the company world renowned. The Victoria Ghost is a chair with great charm and personality which fits elegantly into any style of surrounding. This modern chair is a true modern design classic and it will most certainly compliment any interior.
