Pasha: Yet Another Polycarbonate Chair

I love ghost chairs. The originals, the knock offs, the rentals at events. Whatever. Clear chairs, basically plastic and line produced, very cool. Why? Because they look pretty damn sharp mixed in with regular decor. That’s modern or classic, whatever, as long as there is some color there. Should you go out and fill up your digs with polycarbonate chairs and plastic tables and so on? Nah. That’s the recipe for ending up looking like a specialty shop that’s trying to hard. But one or even two clear plastic chairs? Very cool.

This particular polycarbonate chair is Pasha, designed by Marco Pocci and Claudio Dondoli for Pedrali, and it also comes in black and white for those who like the fantastic plastic but not so much the clear aesthetic as much as I do.

    Not sure how I feel about those. I think I’d worry they were sneaking up on me, like I was never really sure where they were in a room, and that they would float away if I tried to sit on them. Or that they were trying to run off with the seat cushion.

    They may be trying to sneak into your home even as I write this, marvel! You won’t see them until they’re just sitting there in your living room.

    I think I just prefer my chairs to look a little less ethereal and a little more substantial. I don’t know what gives the clear plastic the animated look, unless it’s the distortion and reflection of light around the chair that could make it look like it was moving.

    Last week the maharajah of mahogany Ralph Lauren bid fair to become the pasha of plastic with a 12 585 acrylic console at his Polo shop on Madison Avenue.
