Born in Paris in 1949, Philippe Starck is one of the most original designers and architects of the last three decades. Having designed furniture, hotels, mega-yachts, lighting and many others throughout his career, Starck has become a fixture in modern design. Not only does Starck create beautifully unconventional designs, he creates a finished product whose main purpose is to function well before anything else.
Philippe Starck has obtained many important acknowledgements, including the Grand Prix National de la Création industrielle and the Honor Award of the American Institute of Architects. In Starck's own words, "subversive, ethical, ecological, political, humorous... this is how I see my duty as a designer."
Kartell works with renowned designers such as Ron Arad, Antonio Citterio, Michele De Lucchi, Ferruccio Laviani, Piero Lissoni, patricia Urquiola, Vico Magistretti, Enzo Mari, Alberto Meda, Paolo Rizzatto and Philippe Starck, who all appreciate the wealth of knowledge that Kartell has about plastics technology and the innovative ways in which it can be effectively applied to items for modern living.
Kartell has over fifty years of experience in designing classic furniture from plastics which has made the company famous in the history of Italian and international design.
Loving the Gnome!
It's true what the other reviewer said about these being shaky to sit on, but I put a lamp on mine and don't sit on it. So, I'm happy to look at it and have it in my place.

Good Design, Worst Quality
I have loved the look of the gnome stool for a long time and finally bought it. Unfortunately the quality leaves a lot to be desired. There are just too many problems:
- The base of the stool is uneven so it is shaky on the floor
- The finish of the paint around the ear area is bumpy and rough
- The biggest problem is the top. First it is hollow so it can't support much weight. Second, it is not flat with a raised center. Who would want a stool that can't hold weight, shaky and not flat.
