The “Costes” chair was used by Philippe Starck in 1981 to furnish the famous Café Costes in Paris, characterized by the use of models that were extremely functional, resistant and made of simple materials. Starck used a tripod shape to avoid making it too bulky, which would have hindered the movements of the waiters. The larger version of the chair retrieves the tripod model; it was created a year later for the office of French President Francois Mitterrand at the Élisées. Undisputed symbols of elegance and comfort, the chair and armchair (the latter also known as “Pratfall”) became from the 1980s true icons of contemporary design. Black lacquered tubular steel frame, bent plywood shell in veneered mahogany, natural or lacquered. Seat padded with polyurethane foam and covered with leather or fabric.


100% Made in Italy. Black painted tubular steel, bent plywood shell with mahogany natural or black, walnut or wengé veneer finish. Seat padded with polyurethane foam. Leather or fabric upholstery.

The leather we use is full grain aniline, 1.2 - 1.4 mm thick. and its origins are Northern European countries. It comes from the outermost layer of the animal, which keeps intact the natural elasticity and flexibility thus ensuring its long resistance over time.
