Miss Wirt Chair by Philippe Starck for Disform 1982

A rare and collectible chair designed by Philippe Starck in 1982 for Disform. Black cotton canvas fabric is stretched over two vertical steel tubes and the tension creates the comfortable back of the chair. The seat has a matching cotton canvas cover cinched under the seat with black cotton ties. Fabric is original and in very good condition considering its age!
Philippe Starck has designed a wide range of consumer goods and interiors. He focuses on mass-produced consumer goods rather than one-off pieces, seeking ways to reduce cost and improve quality in mass-market goods, which makes him a truly democratic designer. His products have sensual, appealing forms suggestive of character or personal identity, which are often given clever or whimsical names. This chair is in the permanent collection of MoMA, the Brooklyn Museum, and numerous international museum collections as well.
