Philippe Starck: Le Boudoir de Charlotte
DAMN Magazine, 13 June 2022
Ketabi Bourdet Design is pleased to announce its participation in the 2022 edition of Design Miami/ Basel. We will present Le Boudoir de Charlotte, showcasing a solo selection of rare Philippe Starck (b. 1949) pieces, designed and produced between 1979 and 1990.
The booth’s centerpieces will be a rare pair of La Villette swiveling chairs mounted on 16 aluminium plates, and a Tom Double Psyché of which we only know two examples to this day. The idea of exhibiting a boudoir comes from the fact that 1980s design represents a comeback of a more bourgeois typology of furniture which was abandoned by the Modernists in the 1950s, such as carpets, folding screens, mirrors.
This presentation will be followed later this year by Le Fumoir de Paul focusing on darker aesthetics.
