An instant classic when it first appeared in 1998, the Kartell Ero|S| Chair presents a certain familiarity in its form. Designed by Philippe Starck, the molded plastic furniture piece draws some of its look from the Eames Eiffel Chair, a timeless Herman Miller classic designed by Charles and Ray Eames half a century ago, although here there are hints of whimsical elements that only Starck could dream up. Now, the chair will be going through another phase as the latest entry to COMME des GARçONS” Black Peanuts design initiative. Part of the upcoming “Astronaut Snoopy” collection, an outline of Snoopy floating adrift in his spacesuit dominates the transparent seat back with the moonscape in close proximity. Unlike the rest of the collection, however, this exclusive design will only be available through Dover Street Market Ginza in Tokyo.
