Kartell’s Uncle Jack Sofa

WORDS Michaela Stehr


Meet Uncle Jack, a groundbreaker in the Kartell Aunts and Uncles collection designed by Philippe Starck.

Kartell and Philippe Starck have pushed the envelope with the design of Uncle Jack. This minimalist sofa, 190 cm long and weighing in at 30 kg, is the largest piece of furniture ever made by injecting polycarbonate into a single mould – it represents a revolution in injection-moulding technology. The transparent sofa is available in two shades, crystal and smoke.

Another member of the family is Uncle Jim, an armchair that complements the sofa.

Prices start at R22 266.
