A most inviting chair with an organic design that inspires comfort, neatness and style. Mr. Impossible is the combination of sophisticated design and advanced plastic processing design. It takes on a new technological challenge with highly sophisticated processing techniques that consist in the welding of two shells: the transparent structure and the seat, in a full-coloured and translucent version, are joined together making them indestructible and guarantee a truly surprising design effect. The seal of two ovals shells gives the plastic a new bi-colour and three-dimensional effect because it welds a transparent and a coloured surface together without interruption, revolutioning the perception of the material which becomes rich and hyper-technological.

Polycarbonate Characteristics (PC)
The polycarbonate is a particular type of non-toxic polyester with the same transparency of glass. It's practically unbreakable and very resistant to atmospheric agents, scratches and harsh environmental conditions.
In general, any plastic surface should be cleaned with a soft damp cloth (microfiber is fine) soaked with soap or mild liquid detergent, preferably diluted with water.
Never use acetone, trichlorethylene, ammonia, ethyl alcohol or detergents that contain even small amounts of these chemicals, which deteriorate irreparably plastic materials of which they are composed.
Philippe Starck (Paris, 1949) is considered the king Midas of design. At the age of 20 he became Pierre Cardin art director and at the age of 30 founded his first company, Starck Production.
His creations are linked by the same common thread: the desire to approach design to the general public by going beyond the concept of "elite".
Among his most renowned architectonic works we can find design hotels in Miami, London, New York and Tokyo. He also designed the interior for the private apartments of Mitterrand in Paris.
In the design field he collaborates with Flos, Kartell, Driade, Cassina and Alessi for whom, in 1991, he realized the Juicy Salif juicer that has become a popular cult item.
At present he lives in Paris where he works as professor at the Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs.
