Ten years after designing his iconic Louis Ghost Chair, Philippe Starck added the One More Barstool (2012) to the collection. “If you want to sip a drink at the bar in peace and quiet, you need a comfortable tall stool with a back to lean against,” says Starck. “Sometimes one drink is not enough, and you need ‘One More’ ... and sometimes ‘One more, please.’” Sleek and sturdy, the first Ghost presented a significant manufacturing challenge for Kartell. Crafted from a single piece of injection-molded polycarbonate, the medallion back could be created thanks only to Kartell’s accumulated knowledge, built over years of innovation in plastics manufacturing. The result is a robust collection with a medallion backrest for leisurely comfort. Discussing the design of the collection with The Dallas Morning News, Starck commented that it “has a mix of materials and styles based on our shared memories. We all own this piece in a way. The chair is well balanced; I try to be balanced myself.” One More Barstool is suitable for indoor and outdoor use in residential and commercial settings. Made in Italy.
