THE STORY

Based in Milan, where the company first began, Kartell is regarded as a contemporary design icon whose pieces are instantly recognised the world over.

Founded in 1949 by chemical engineer, Giulio Castelli, the company's first venture into plastic products was in the form of car accessories. Following this, they expanded into laboratory equipment in 1958, and finally home furnishings and furniture, which were introduced in 1963. After extensive research and innovative experimentation, a huge milestone came in 1999 when Kartell succeeded as the first ever company to produce furniture using polycarbonate. Still a signature element of the brand's collections today, this development led to the birth of transparent designs such as the Louis Ghost chair, which quickly became the most widely sold chair in the world.

about

Having received numerous international awards for its innovative and popular creations, as well as collaborating with some of the biggest names in contemporary design to reinvent the image of plastic products, Kartell has secured its position as an industry leader.

Wood

THE WOOD

Striding confidently into new territory, Kartell’s wooden collection features items for the home office and beyond. The result of highly modern technologies, these products have a distinctive look which sets them apart from previous Kartell creations. They’re also manufactured using a minimal amount of wood, all of which is sustainably sourced and shaped in a highly efficient way that reduces waste.

THE SURFACES

Kartell’s smooth matt finishes are a sophisticated contrast against the more dazzling aesthetic of its glossy and metallic pieces. Available in a range of timeless neutral tones, they can be combined with a wide range of colour palettes and suited to any modern interior.

TRANSPARENCY

Kartell has continually evolved throughout its life, all the while maintaining its identity. The company became best known for bringing attention to the beauty of transparent homewares and for innovating the use of polycarbonate. Now, in a huge step forward for the brand, a revolutionary component has been developed which allows Kartell to produce the same transparent pieces we know and love, but in a more environmentally friendly way. Obtained partially from vegetable waste, this new component is just one example of how Kartell is able to adapt to current climates.
