Sometimes referencing three other things all at once in a design is a ridiculous mess (however fabulous the result may be). Sometimes, it rocks. Witness Kartell's new Masters Chair, which references silhouettes of famous chairs by Arne Jacobsen, Charles and Ray Eames, and Eero Saarinen. The resulting chair is some kind of seriously whacked out Thonet No. 14, capturing the lightness and alien spirit of that chair. In plastic.
If only they'd added Adolf Loos to the mix.
