Introducing Kartell – Iconic Italian Design
We’re very excited to be offered the opportunity to retail coveted design objects from Italian company Kartell.
Kartell has been producing iconic and highly collectible designs in plastic since 1949. Over the years we've managed to get our hands on a few vintage pieces which have become highly sought-after. Offering new work from Kartell allows us to be part of the ongoing legacy, to share exciting work from contemporary designers and have access to classic pieces from the Kartell back catalogue.
We currently have an edited selection of our favourite pieces in store but have access to the full range of Kartell products. If there's any piece you've always wanted we would love to make it a reality. Talk to us today.
Kartell was founded in 1949 by Giulio Castelli and has since become one of the symbols of Italian design around the world. It's a success story told through an incredible series of ground breaking products which have graced some of the most forward focused domestic and commercial interiors.
Kartell has always been guided by a love of good design. It's an approach that has led to a list of collaborators which reads like a who's who of industrial design. Joe Colombo, Philippe Starck, Patricia Urquiola and Etorre Sottsass are only a few of the many important contributors to the success of this Italian dynasty.
Colour, irony, transparency, unique shapes and a play of the senses all come together to make memorable pieces of the highest quality. This is the legacy that Kartell has created and continues to champion with leading designers today.
