Designed by Philippe Starck for DEDON, the leading producer of hand-woven outdoor furniture, the PLAY chair-armchair is the fruit of two opposing yet interchanging design concepts. It marries the high technology of a molded polypropylene and fiberglass frame with the unique style of chairs and backrests handcrafted by master artisans.

Based on a concept of interchangeable liaisons of materials, colors, workings, PLAY opens the horizon to a future of specially customized furniture and an array of possible combinations. Pieces that can be redesigned to achieve a personal fit, ordered online, produced upon request, and which assume the client’s direct, emotional and creative inputs to make the design relationship more liberating and fun.

Elastic and durable, extremely lightweight and stackable, Starck defines the PLAY chair- armchair as “an idea that gives plenty of room to human intervention”. A piece that melds mirror-finish aluminum with solid teak, or polypropylene with the unalterable hand-woven s synthetic fiber that has made DEDON famous the world over, and which brings together a range of specific skills and exclusive solutions. PLAY will be offered in several color ways, combinations and melanges of chalk and carbon, stone and terracotta, and bronze.

With or without armrests, PLAY has inspired also PLAY with DEDON, a collaboration that encompasses the BISTRO table, with its glazed porcelain ceramic tabletop that stands on a central pedestal made of molded polypropylene, and DINING, a four-legged table in mirror-finish aluminum and profiled in aluminum, and which, thanks to the use of an inert compound of powdered bamboo and plastic, looks just like real wood.
