“Why is a dining chair often elegant but not very comfortable? Why is an officechair often ugly, but always comfortable? Why not combine the best of both?”
These were the questions that contemporary French Designer Philippe Starck sought to answer, when designing the Passion Chair, and Caprice dining chair.
The chair, designed in 2007, features a moulded plastic shell with an upholstered interior. The seat has been designed to wrap around you like an armchair, creating office furniture that is stylish as well as comfortable.
The range has been further developed in 2013 to include a tulip swivel base, or a spoke base with wheels.
