DESIGNER : Philippe Starck


The Dr Sonderbar armchair was designed by the famous French designer Philippe Starck in 1983, for the publisher XO. According to Starck, it is an example of the design accession stage. A kind of extravagant phase that helped to get people interested in design again. Philippe Starck himself admits that it's not really possible to sit on it. It can be used as a clothes rack in an entrance hall or bedroom. 

With this piece, he aims to democratize socially recognizable furniture. The model's name refers to "Doctor Sonderbar", a character in Philip K. Dick's science-fiction novel Ubik. This airy, uncluttered piece features a tubular structure in chromed steel.
