Design by Philippe Starck.
Philippe Starck has reinvented the classic Louis XVI for Kartell.A comfortable armchair in transparent and colored polycarbonate in the Louis XV style, it is the quintessence of baroque revisited to dazzle, excite and captivate. Louis Ghost is the most daring example of the world of injected polycarbonate in a single mold. Despite its evanescent and crystalline appearance, Louis Ghost is stable and durable, shock, scratch and weather resistant. It can also be stacked six high. This article has great charm and considerable visual appeal and brings a touch of elegance and irony to any style of home or public place.
Also sold in sets of 4 chairs: Louis Ghost, Set of 4 Chairs.
Material(s): Polycarbonate, Polymer
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."See other lights/products from Philippe Starck

I'm in love with a ghost.
I am so pleased with my purchase, and with YLighting. This was my first purchase with YLighting and I have only compliments for the company: easy ordering process, speedy delivery, and well-packed goods. (So well packed, in fact, it took about an hour to remove all of the packing "peanut" residue from my chair. But the chair arrived in perfect condition.)

A modern classic
There really isn't much to say about these chairs other than they are a modern design classic. They're also surprisingly comfortable. We love ours.

It's a nice chair, but a little pricey
I received my chair and it had some scratches on it from the factory, which I thought was strange because they market the chair as scratch resistant. I must say YLighting made the return process extremely pleasant and really not a lot of work for me (UPS came to pick it up). It has taken almost 2 weeks to receive the replacement whereas I received the first chair in 3 days. I haven't gotten the full experience of it yet, but the little that I did I thought the chair was a little "flimsy" for the price, not as sturdy as I would have liked... But you can not deny that it's a beautifully designed chair that makes a statement, which is why I'm keeping it and I don't regret the purchase.
