Starck vs. Castiglioni

Photo via smartfurniture.com

The Ghost Chair by Phillipe Starck have always seduced me with their sexy transparency. Unfortunately my practical side always won, as I don´t think I would allow any of my visitors to sit down in the The Ghost Chair for fear of their clothing scratching up the surface. Therefore I would have a rule. If you sit in this chair, you must sit in it naked. And well....I don´t think I really want to see my friends naked, there are just somethings you do not want singed in your brain cells.

Then I saw this photograph. These chairs are perfect and have the best of both worlds. Sexy transparency and the practicality of the pillow´s protective buffering power. I think I prefer the brawniness of the barrel chair as well.

I feel the same as you about the ghost chair. I'm sure that I would annoy my friends by telling them not to sit in it. I am sorry that I didn't buy one when they were first available, as they were quite reasonable then. Wishing you all the best. I have enjoyed my visit to your most interesting blog.
