Philippe Starck with his 'Play' series for DEDON

There are only a few designers who polarise as much as Philippe Starck does. After I saw his fantastic speach for Ted I decided to belong to those who love him.

Recently during this year’s Milan fair the Paris based designer presented his new outdoor furniture series ‘Play’ he created together with Eugeni Quitllet for the German manufacturer DEDON. The heart of the ‘Play’ family is the stackable lightweight chair which is composed of a moulded polypropylene frame and optional kinds of coverings: solid teak, mirror-finish aluminium or hand-woven synthetic fiber, the higly durable material that has made DEDON famous the world over.

“PLAY will be offered in several colour ways, combinations and melanges of chalk and carbon, stone and terracotta, and bronze. With or without armrests, ‘Play’ has inspired also ‘Play’ with DEDON, a collaboration that encompasses the ‘Bistro’ table, with its glazed porcelain ceramic tabletop that stands on a central pedestal made of moulded polypropylene, and ‘Dining’, a four-legged table in mirror-finish aluminium and profiled in aluminium, and which, thanks to the use of an inert compound of powdered bamboo and plastic, looks just like real wood.”
