KartellA leading design company, founded in 1949 by Giulio Castelli and now run by Claudio Luti, Kartell is one of the symbols of Italian design around the world.
Kartell product is immediately recognisable around the world for the emotion it generates, its durability and undisputed quality.
The on-going 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. As a result of this on-going research, all-new properties have been introduced to plastic, such as satin-finish, transparency, flexibility, resistance to atmospheric agents, softness and touch, and surprising and special colours.In addition to being practical and functional, Kartell plastic is also sensual and precious, and radically transforms 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.
