A leading design company, founded in 1949 by Giulio Castelli and today chaired by Claudio Luti, Kartell is one of the symbolic companies of Made in Italy design. A success story told through an incredible series of products – furniture, furnishing accessories, lighting, home accessories – which have now become part of the domestic landscape, if not true icons of contemporary design. Kartell avails itself of the collaboration of the most prestigious international designers. The Kartell collection is multifunctional and transversal, easy to use and with an undoubted aesthetic appeal. Color, irony, play of the senses, transparencies and unique shapes for unique objects: the Kartell product is recognizable at first sight all over the world for the emotion it gives, its durable functionality and undisputed quality.
The continuous evolution in the use of plastic materials and the experimentation of new technologies and processes are fundamental for Kartell, always striving for innovation both in terms of functional performance and the aesthetic qualities of a product. Thanks to this continuous research it has been possible to introduce unprecedented properties in plastic such as satin finish, transparency, flexibility, resistance to atmospheric agents, softness and touch, surprising and special colors. Kartell plastic, in addition to being practical and functional , is sensual and precious and radically transforms the perception of the product in this material from a purely functional object to a real luxury item.
Kartell’s know-how consists in pushing innovation always to extremes, allowing designers to express their creativity with new technologies and materials to give life to real “industrial revolutions” in our domestic landscape.
