Costes Chair by Philippe Starck (Driade)
Philippe Starck designed the "Costes" armchair in 1985 for the café of the same name in Paris, which only existed for a few years. The café combined technoid elements with a return to qualities of 1920s Art Deco.
The Costes Chair is one of the few pieces of furniture from the early phase of the internationally renowned French designer that are still on the market today. It reinterprets classic coffee house furniture. A group of Costes Chairs also lends an elegant touch to private dining rooms.
The seat shell of this comfortable three-legged chair is made of mahogany or black lacquered oak, and variants in bamboo or wenge have also been added. A seat cushion covered with leather provides seating comfort. The frame is made of black lacquered tubular steel.
