Clap Melange Chair
designed by Patricia Urquiola

The comb-back chair, or Comback Chair, is Kartell's foray into 18th-century England. Going back to a time when steam was used to bend wood into the shapes needed to form the chair's shape, Kartell chooses a different material altogether.

The seat, back, and arms of the Kartell Comback Chair are formed from a single plastic mold, while this modern Windsor chair's sled base is made from bent painted steel rods.

About the Manufacturer

Greenington LogoCreativity and technology, glamour and functionality, quality and innovation: a combination of extraordinary factors together with a strategic vision of distribution has contributed to the lasting success of Kartell. By cultural and entrepreneurial choice, since its origins in 1949 the Italian manufacturer has chosen to characterize itself as the market leader in the production of designers articles which use technology and plastic materials. This choice requires a great understanding of materials and transformation technology. A leader in furniture design, Kartell addresses an international audience with a collection unique in originality, variety, size, and range.

Environmental Info

Contrary to the common idea, products in plastic materials are highly ecological for the reason that they can be recycled (with the exception of polyurethane, little used in Kartell seating). In addition, the use of plastics reduces the need for living plants, such as trees, which are costly and take years to replace. In order to simplify the recycling process, the various components of Kartell furniture can be easily separated and reduced to elements made of one single material. Moreover, the plastic parts of each product carry, clearly printed, an identification mark to determine the correct classification of the seven different kinds of plastic and their effective recycling.

Patricia UrquiolaPatricia Urquiola
Patricia Urquiola was born in 1961 in Oviedo, Spain. She studied architecture in Madrid, later transferring to Italy where she earned her degree from the Milan Polytechnic in 1989 (with a thesis mentored by Achille Castiglioni). From 1990 to 1992 she assisted in the courses held by Castiglioni and Eugenio Bettinelli, both at the Milan Polytechnic and at the ENSCI, Paris. In 1991 she started working for the furniture company de Padova in Milan, heading the product development office, where she also designed her first furniture items (together with Vico Magistretti). Between 1993 and 1996 she opened an associated studio with two friends, working on architecture, interiors, showrooms and restaurants. From 1996 to 2000 she became manager of the Lissoni Associati Design Group and in 2001 she opened her own studio in Milan, focusing on product design, displays and architecture. She became best known through her many pieces for Moroso. Patricia has won many design awards and spoke at conferences and seminars in various international universities. her recent work includes projects for Depadova, Moroso, Agape, B&B, Alessi, Driade, Foscarini, Kartell, Flos, Molteni, Artelano, and others.


Care & Maintenance

Simple care is needed for the maintenance of Kartell products to retain the original features of the materials.


Cleaning Use a soft damp cloth with soap or a liquid detergent, preferably diluted with water. Do not use acetone, trichloroethylene, ammonia or other corrosive plastic cleaners. Avoid ethyl alcohol, which dulls the surface. We recommend always using a damp cloth to prevent plastic surfaces from becoming charged with static electricity which attracts dust. Also avoid abrasive solvents, cleaning powders and creams, steel wool or rough sponge cloths.

Use Do not drag objects across the plastic surface, even if it has a scratch resistant finish, since sharp objects can damage the plastic just as they would damage wood or metal. Do not place very hot plates or pots directly on the surface, but always use a cloth or trivet.


Cleaning As with plastic surfaces, use a soft damp cloth. Do not use alcohol or other spot removers. For a deeper cleaning use a little nonabrasive liquid detergent and wipe in the direction of the wood grain. Dry the surface well with a soft cloth. Never use acetone, trichloroethylene or

Use Moisture in wood can cause swelling which is normal in a natural material. Our woods hold up well under normal temperature and humidity conditions. Slight color variations from one piece of wood to another are normal and these tend to disappear with time. Wood can change color over time. To delay this, it is best to avoid placing it in direct sunlight.


Cleaning Normal soil on a steel or aluminum surface, whether natural or painted, should be removed with luke-warm water and a liquid household cleaner using a soft cloth or chamois. Never use cleaning powders, abrasive or steel wool pads, which can cause scratching, or liquid
detergents that contain chlorine or its derivatives such as bleach or muriatic acid.

Use Avoid spilling grapefruit juice, cola, salt and coffee on metal surfaces. These can cause indelible stains. To remove black marks on aluminum chair legs, products especially made for steel finishes or non-abrasive car polishes are recommended.
