These polycarbonate chairs by Philippe Starck are made "with transparent polycarbonate in a single mould," sourced by DesignBoom. Due to this interesting way of building the seats, the chairs are clear and come in various colors.

While the seating looks extremely impressive, the practicality of the chairs is another matter. Personally the thought of sitting on a seat that looks like it's made out of glass does not sound comfortable, nor sturdy. That being said, this design would be great as more of a decorative piece in one's living room or dining room, just as long as people don't mistake it for a functional chair and sit down heavily.

When it comes to polycarbonate chairs, Philipple Starck has raised the bar. Photo Credits: designboom,
