Founded in 1949 by Giulio Castelli, Kartell is a leading design company and one of the symbols of Italian design around the world. A success story told through an incredible series of products by contemporary design icons– Philippe Starck, Patricia Urquiola, Piero Lissoni, Antonio Citterio - Kartell furniture, lighting, and decor have become part of the domestic landscape.
The ongoing evolution in the use of plastics and experimentation with new technologies and processes are fundamental for Kartell, which has always strived to innovate its functional performance and the aesthetic qualities of its products. New properties such as satin-finish, transparency, flexibility, resistance to atmospheric agents, softness and touch, have been introduced to plastic in surprising and special colors, radically transforming the perception of a plastic product from a merely functional object to a veritable luxury item.
Kartell know-how consists of pushing innovation to the limit, enabling designers to express their creativity with new technologies and materials in order to create real “industrial revolutions” within the home.
