Kartell was created in 1949, and is the world's leading manufacturer of original Italian design classics, made in Italy, from plastic. Continuing to push the scientific limits of the material, Kartell works closely with designers to make plastic engaging and desirable. Colours, irony, transparency effects and unique shapes for unique items make authentic Kartell products immediately recognisable. World famous designers collaborate with Kartell, including Philippe Starck, Ron Arad, Piero Lissoni, Alberto Meda, and Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. These creative collaborations manage to find a perfect balance between each designer's project experience and the company's potential and demands. Accessories from Kartell cover a broad range of designs and functions, but always carry that unmistakable use of colour, excitement and joy inherent in Kartell's collection..
