A ghostly chair goes for baroque

Alain Forcioli, owner of Espace Côté Sud, has unveiled his reinterpretation of Philippe Starck's famous Louis Ghost chair, one that abandons some ghostliness in favour of baroque charms.

Created in 2000, the transparent Louis Ghost chair is one of the French design star's most famous creations. It provided the inspiration to a new generation of objects that blended vintage shapes and contemporary materials.

With the endorsement of design house Kartell, Alain Forcioli created a version with a back dressed in red tufted padding and front legs emblazoned with gilded gold. This metamorphosis between kitsch and glamour saw the light when a restaurateur consulted Forcioli on the redesign of his establishment.

Forcioli envisioned the Louis Ghost for the terrasse and red-padded chairs for the interior and then he envisioned the two morphed together.

The Louis Ghost and other furniture items, such as tables and modular sofas, can be rented for events at Sofa to go.
