Designed by Designed by Philippe Starck for the Café Costes in Paris, the curvy Costes dining chair has a black-painted, tubular steel frame and a veneered, plywood shell. Its generously padded seat cushion is available in eight shades of aniline leather. Available with a low or high back, the Costes works particularly well with circular dining tables, such as the Noguchi Cyclone.
Designed in 1984, this collection of chairs marked the beginning of a beautiful partnership between Philippe Starck and furniture company, Driade. It's unique three-legged design was made so that the waiters in the cafe wouldn't trip up as much over the chairs.
Philippe Starck is known for being one of the most original and creative designers of our time. He has received many important acknowledgements e.g. the Grand Prix National de la Création industrielle and the Honour Award of the American Institute of Architects.
