Lenny’s Chair

Have you heard?  Lenny Kravitz and Philippe Stark have teamed up on a new line of chairs for Kartel. Introduced in Milan this week at the annual Salone Internazionale del Mobile, the chair is an interpretation of Starks iconic Mademoiselle chair. The upholstery reflects Kravitz’s unique design style. Bold color and texture give a new feel to this classic sit upon. Kravitz founded his own Soho design studio in 2003, so he has experience  to bring to the project. Of course Kartell is known for its forward thinking collaborations, always producing products with some stage presence. This new venture from Lenny and Philippe delivers with a bit of glamor and star appeal. The most intruiging thing about these chairs is the highly textural and contrasting upholstery choices, both beautiful and unexpected, inviting us to sit and stay awhile.
