'Comeback' chair by Patricia Urquiola for Kartell

The Spanish-born Milan-based designer and architect Patricia Urquiola has created this series of three chairs for the renown Italian manufacturer Kartell. A modern reinterpretation of the classic 18th-cantury Windsor chair, the glossy ‘Comeback’ features ‘a backrest consisting of seven “teeth” which spread out towards the lumbar region where they meet a reinforced hexagonal rim with slim shafts radiating down to join the seat’. The chair is available in three structural variations and a number of vivid colours.

About the design:

 

‘Kartell once again has fun in revisiting a great classic and giving a new look to the Windsor chair. A goodly size, this single mould chair embodies functionality and ergonomics well-freighted with sentiment and memories. The use of plastic and the bright colours available give a touch of lightness and the contemporary to the Comback chair.’
