Philippe Starck WW Stool

Philippe Starck WW Stool

In 1991 Philippe Starck designed a fantasy office environment for German film director Wim Wenders (look here for Wim Wenders’ official site). One element of this environment, the WW Stool, is now in production in small series by Vitra. The filigrain design is more a sculpture that it can be used as a stool. It may serve as support for users who prefer to stand rather than an item of furniture intended to be purely functional.

Material: varnished sand-cast aluminum.
