Eugeni Quittlet Furniture and Lighting:

One of his latest creations is the Kartell Masters Chair. With Masters, Catalan designer Eugeni Quitllet has taken the silhouettes of famous modernist chairs and amalgamated them into the back of this armchair. Eugeni Quitllet's Masters Stool retains the sinuous forms of the chair he created with French designer Philippe Starck for Italian plastics company Kartell. Available in a range of colours, the bar stool can be used both indoors or outdoors. It was launched at the Maison & Objet fair in Paris. Eugeni Quitllet latest play with transparency and emptiness for Kartell is the Light air table lamp. An illusionist table lamp, a suspended light that eludes the laws of gravity. Light-air is essential, modern and rational, but at the same time it produces a magic effect. Its structure is a strong graphic statement composed of a rectangular frame formed of two pieces of methacrylate, the most trasparent plastic used in car industry, containing a conical parabola inside diffusing the light rays. The lamp with LED technology comes in two versions, one "traditional" and one mirrored.
