The Kartell Q Wood Dining Armchair in one of a series of revolutionary furniture products designed by Philippe Starck using 'Smart Wood'. This ride or dining chair - the 'Q' stands for 'Queen' - comes in basic veneer or slatted ash light or dark wood.

What is'Smart Wood'?
Smart Wood is the fusion of one of life's boldest and basic furniture construction materials fused with technological know how. With patented technology a fine layer of wood is worked with a mould, designed to provide curvature of the wooden panel to the edges to create a shape of unprecedented roundness. In this way the beauty of the wood is enhanced - bent horizontally and vertically in three dimensions to create welcoming curves to ensure maximum comfort. This practice is part of the 'Kartell Loves The Planet' philosophy - aimed at enhancing good practices for sustainability throughout the production process in the use of raw materials, coupled with low environmental impact. The Q Wood Armchair is composed of 6 layers of wood and comes in a leather seat to co-ordinate with the finish of the chair.

Veneer vs Slatted Ash

Smartwood Chairs come in two options - Basic Veneer or Slatted Ash. Basic veneer is plywood overlaid in beech whereas slatted ash has a more visible grain due to the stripping and cutting of the trunk. Basic veneer has a more uniform colour due to the homogenous nature of the wood whereas slatted ash is more varied due to the woods grain and veinings, making each product unique.

Thank You Messages

I have rarely experienced such excellent quality advice, support and reliability. Your staff communicate effectively and helpfully. I am a truly satisfied customer. I love my String Shelving and I will not hesitate to return to Utility for my next purchase. Thank you!

Your customer service has been fantastic. I'm seriously impressed. Really pleased to be able to place the bigger order and make your time worthwhile. I think I need to send you a medal!

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

Excellent customer service and immediate response to enquiry (live chat). Very happy every time used Utility both online and on high street.

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
