The Kartell brand is proud to introduce the Kartell Houston flagship store.
A 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. A success story told through an incredible series of products – furniture, furnishings, lighting, home accessories – that have become part of the domestic landscape, not to mention actual contemporary design icons. Across 130 countries, Kartell has over 130 flagship stores and 250 shop-in-shops.
Collaborating with the most prestigious international designers is key to the Kartell brand. Our collection is multifunctional and offers mass appeal, easy of use and beauty. Color, transparency, unique shapes, irony and a play of the senses come together to make unique pieces:
Kartell products are immediately recognizable around the world for the emotion they create, its durability and undisputed quality.
The evolution in the use of plastics and experimentation with new technologies and processes are key for Kartell, which has always strived to innovate the performance and the aesthetic qualities of the products. As a result of this research, all new properties have been introduced in plastic, with satin-finish, transparency, flexibility, softness and touch, and surprising 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.
Creativity and technology, glamour and functionality, quality and innovation: an extraordinary combination of factors, along with a strategic vision of distribution have contributed to the lasting success of Kartell. A leader in design, Kartell addresses an international clientele with a collection unique in originality, variety and depth of range.
Kartell was founded in 1949 and boasts 60 years of history, through a unique product line that shows variety and originality, composed of objects that express the language and atmosphere of the period in which they were created, but, are absolutely contemporary, and bear many other values and messages. All this has made them an integral part of the domestic design landscape.
