Kartell was founded in Italy in 1949 and since then has held a prominent position in the world of modern design. What sets Kartell apart from other brands is their use of plastic as the main material for their products. The brand has transformed plastic into a high-quality material that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing, taking as proof their iconic transparent chairs and visionary lighting. One of the main designers who have collaborated with Kartell is Philippe Starck. He has created several iconic designs for the brand, including the Louis Ghost chair.
