The Collection


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.

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.
