In the design of the chair “bo” Starck starts from the canonical rules for stacking chairs as closer front legs, rear legs positioned externally to edge of the seat, but immediately changes them into an expedient measure to characterize the project.
Bo takes, in fact, a special shot, taking advantage of its enlargement where the seat becomes backrest. Analyzing “bo” we then forget its stackability even if, when necessary, it succeeds without any “formal effort”.
Philippe Starck is an internationally acclaimed french creator, designer and architect. his profound comprehension of contemporary mutations, his determination to change the world, his anticipatory concern for environmental implications, his love of ideas, his desire to defend the intelligence of usefulness - and the usefulness of intelligence - have accompanied one iconic creation after the other. from everyday products such as furniture and lemon squeezers, to revolutionary mega-yachts, individual windmills, electric bikes or hotels and restaurants that aspire to be wondrous, stimulating and intensely vibrant places. this untiring and rebellious citizen of the world, who considers it his duty to share his ethical and subversive vision of a fairer planet, creates unconventional places and objects whose purpose is to be “good” before being beautiful. philippe starck and his wife, jasmine, mostly live on an airplane or in “middles of nowhere”.
