Driade Out-in High Backrest Armchair
Designer: Philippe Starck
Availability if not in stock 2 to 3 weeks.
Driade - Out-In High Backrest is the lhe fruit of the successful collaboration between Philippe Starck and Italian manufacturer Driade.
- Created in collaboration with Eugeni Quitllet, the high-backrest armchair and the rest of the Out-In range are designed for use both outside and inside, hence the name.
- Intended to cocoon the user and allow them to curl up in a variety of positions, the armchair is an interesting evolution of Starck’s Oscar Bon and Lago chairs that he has previously designed for Driade.
- The simple, clean surfaces and unadorned, tapering legs are typical of much of Starck’s furniture and the range is an interesting addition to the versatile high-end polyethylene pieces that Driade has experimented with, such as the notable ‘Tokyo Pop’ stool and lounge chair from Tokujin Yoshioka in 2002.
Made of Polyethylene.
