Phillippe Starck’s Louis Ghost Chair for Kartell pretty much became an instant classic, but it was only launched in 2003. So that can hardly claim to be retro, but here it is in a limited edition version to celebrate the birthday of another icon. This is the 50th anniversary Barbie Ghost Chair.
As you would expect from anything Barbie related, the chair’s transparent finish is in pink, and it has a hand-illustrated Barbie image and logo. The chair’s appeal will undoubtedly be limited to collectors, but it does also come in the smaller child’s version, the Lou Lou Ghost Chair, which is a great option for design-conscious parents. T
he Lou Lou chair costs €75.60 (around £67 but VAT and shipping need to be added). The adult version costs just over €197 (around £180). They can be bought online at Questo Design.
