Dr. Yes

Any designer that has ever faced the challenge of designing a new chair is certainly aware of how difficult the task may be, especially if you want to fulfil the functional requirements and set the parameters for a new typology.

His Majesty Philippe Starck does it with ease and style; Dr. Yes is stackable, affordable, suits both indoors and outdoors use, and stunning. 
The chair has a sharp squared geometry on the backrest, and smoothes down in a gently curved seat and legs. The inner part of the seat has a small textile-like texture with a matt finish, while the outer side of the chair and the legs have a shinny glossy finish.

  • Interview: Eugeni Quitllet
    When we first saw his name close to that of Philippe Starck we googled, with no luck. There was no human trace of Eugeni Quitllet and we thought, for a brief moment, that he could be an invention, some sort of imaginary alter ego created by his famously provocative partner. But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
