Kartell Furniture


Kartell Italian design house describes itself as Courageous, enterprising, nonconformist and experimentalist and looking at their range of products its not hard to understand why. Kartell is known around the world for making two things . The first beautiful pieces for the home and office the second is laboratory products - think glass beakers and jars.

The result of a company which does what appears to be two completely different things is an amazing and innovative use of materials such as glass , plastic and steel in both fields .

Heralded internationally for beautiful and innovative furniture Kartell collaborates with famous and talented designers from around the world such as Ron Arad, Antonio Citterio, Michele De Lucchi, Ferruccio Laviani, Piero Lissoni, Vico Magistretti, Enzo Mari and Alberto Meda.

Some of the range is available in New Zealand from Askew in Ponsonby Auckland.
