Details

Fantastic Plactic Elastic is the name behind the initials of this chair, whose primary characteristic is its formal effect: soft and sinuous, colorful and seductive. It is fantastic because of its exclusive technology which allows for a robust but elastic structure by fixing a single plate of curved plastic onto two parallel aluminium tubes. The body is grafted onto the supporting aluminium structure, giving the chair both resistance and flexibility as well as lightness and practicality. It can be conveniently stacked eight high and brings character to any spaces indoor or outdoors.

Kartell FPE Chair in White (Priced Each, Sold in Sets of 2) Designed by:

Ron Arad

Israel, 1951

Arad was born in Tel Aviv. He attended the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem between 1971–73 and the Architectural Association in London from 1974–79. In 1989, with Caroline Thorman, he founded Arad Associates, an architecture and design firm, in London. His brother is the violist and educator Atar Arad.

Arad's career as a designer began with the Rover chair. He was Head of Design Products Department at the Royal College of Art from 1997 to 2009. Arad designed in 1994 the Bookworm bookcase, which was still produced in 2011 by the Italian company Kartell.

Arad's work has been described as "scary", considering its "macho concrete and cut metal; tense sheets of tempered steel and guillotine edges".

In 2005, Arad designed chandeliers for the Swarovski crystal company which if one has the number, can display text messages that are sent to it by incorporating light-emitting diodes (LEDs) operated by SMS text messages. He also has had tables that climb walls instead of being centered in the room. Arad's works are often worked into distinctive biomorphic shapes and are created from his medium of choice, steel. He made plans to expand his studio in 2008.
