About the Designer
Philippe Starck France (1949 - )
He remembers having spent his childhood under his father's drawing tables, passing hours stitching, cutting, gluing and grinding, disassembling bicycles, motorbikes and other objects. Endless hours, an entire life spent dismantling and reassembling anything that fell into his hands, reconstructing his surrounding world. He continues to shake the traditions and culture of the world's major cities, with the interior design of the restaurant at Hong Kong's Peninsula Hotel (1994), the Teatron in Mexico (1995), the Delano Hotel a Miami (1995), the Modrian in Los Angeles (1996), the Asia de Cuba restaurant in New York (1997), as well as an entire series of ongoing projects in London and elsewhere. His skill lies in being able to transform instantly the object of the commission into a place filled with charm, pleasure and encounters. He tirelessly modifies everyday life, exalting the deepest roots of existence in his changes. His increasing fascination with life has now led him to create clothes, underwear, footwear, glasses, food, and always with the conviction that his design respects nature and the future of humankind. In the exhibits of museums all around the world, in Paris, New York, Munich, London, Chicago, Kyoto and Barcelona, his work is considered to be that of a master. He has received numerous prizes and awards: designer of the year, the Oscar de luminaire (1980), the title of Officier des Artes et des Lettres (1985), Compasso d'Oro ADI (2001), Show Boats in Munich (2003), and many others.

These chairs are absolutely wonderful. I am very pleased with the combination of a modern material and a classic design. I went with the crystal, so they will easily go with anything in my home. Additionally, though they are on the small side, they are quite comfortable, and the material seems very durable. The only small thing that I might mention is that I wish that I might have gone with purchasing four single chairs, instead of one set of four chairs. They come stacked as a set, and it looks like there are very light signs of abrasion on some of the legs, which I presume comes from stacking. It's not terribly noticeable, though. I purchased these as dining chairs for a small space, and I'm very happy with them.
Love These Chairs!

I have bought 10 of these chairs for our own use and 4 more for our daughter and her husband as a wedding gift. They are extremely comfortable for people of all sizes, and ages. They are also lightweight, very attractive, and take up a small amount of space, as well as being stackable when not in use. My daughter and her husband love their chairs also!

Was so excited to get these chairs! I saved up for them and was not disappointed! I am using them in the kitchen and they are very well made. I was worried they might be uncomfortable but they are very comfortable and easy to clean! I love them! Would definitely buy them again.
Love these chairs!

I always wanted to buy these chairs and searched them everywhere! Wayfair has by far the best deal on them (being new and guaranteed Kartell and not imitations). Paid no shipping and less for the chairs themselves than anywhere else!
ghost chairs rock
Suzanne from New York, NY– Verified Buyer
Yes, they disappear yet are a graceful, useful addition to any decor. We are using them around a beautiful wood table and didn't want to obstruct the view of the wood work but wanted a sturdy and elegant set of chairs to use around it. I have bought these chairs before but Wayside's prices are much better!
Victoria Ghost Chair
Mike from Chicago, IL– Verified Buyer
I love these chairs., but the colors are different from the Louis Ghost Arm chairs. We tried to match them previously purchased Arm chairs and they do not match. Kartell does not make matching sets, but they do compliment each other.

ghost chairs are great

very nice looking transparent chairs. The make a small space look airy. These are used by me as dining chairs, but they would be good accent chairs as well
