Kartell FAQ's

Where is Kartell based? Kartell was founded by Anna Castelli Ferrieri and Giulio Castelli in 1949 and has, since its inception, been based in Milan, Italy. The Kartell headquarters can be found in Noviglio, Metropolitan City of Milan.
How was the Kartell aesthetic formed? The first steps on the road to producing the distinctive design that would come to epitomise the 'Made in Italy’ label, were taken by the company’s founders. However, in 1988 the company was acquired by Claudio Luti, the son-in-law of Giulio and Anna Castelli who had a background in fashion. The sensibility that Luti had developed under the Versace fashion house, with a love for perfection and tasteful design, heralded a new start for the brand.

Luti sought collaborations with designers and architects like Philippe Starck, Ron Arad, Antonio Citterio, Ferruccio Laviani, Piero Lissoni, Patricia Urquiola, Mario Bellini, Alberto Meda and Vico Magistretti, who were responsible for those products that soon came to symbolise the brand.

The fresh approach to materials dictated the new direction and brought real turning points for Kartell: studying, manipulating and enriching materials resulted in an end product which offered unprecedented characteristics.
What is “Kartell Loves The Planet”? When many people think of plastic furniture, they think of Kartell. As much as their innovative approach toward production with high-tech plastics is something that we should celebrate, it is impossible to ignore the environmental impacts of the material. The Italian giants are well aware, and with “Kartell Loves The Planet, Kartell is continuing down the road begun by the "Kartell loves the planet" manifesto and drafting a company sustainability policy covering 11 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) established by the United Nations as a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all".
