Kartell at Salone del Mobile 2021

19 October 2021

Each year, we highly anticipate Milan’s furniture and lighting design event, Salone del Mobile, with its arrival of new designs from our talented brands, setting the trends and styles for the year ahead. Due to previous pandemic-related cancelations, this year’s exhibition was tagged as @SuperSalone.

Kartell in particular had a number of exciting new releases as well as an engaging display to capture the attention of thousands of visitors. Even though our team couldn’t attend this year, we kept up to date with the latest from Milan!

Kartell’s latest project – In/Casa Kartell shows us how the Italian design house is evolving, new styles and materials have a new and clear focus on beauty and sustainability.

An impressive 95% of Kartell’s new designs presented at the Salone del Mobile event are made from sustainable materials, as well as every product in their catalogue now being fully recyclable. Kartell do not compromise on quality, they research and develop the industry’s most innovative techniques to create everyday items which are both beautiful and well-made whilst being environmentally friendly.

Their newest campaign - In/Casa - is an experience of Kartell’s aesthetic lifestyle, at the event you see the flow of furniture, lighting and accessories displayed together harmoniously, with an updated stylish functionality. Here, we give you an overview of the new collections...

The collection so far comprises of a table lamp and wall light. ‘Goodnight’ is inspired by the traditional stick candle, in true Starck style he has reimagined this basic light medium into a highly technological design piece.

Philippe Starck intends to bring back to warmth and purity of candlelight through the modern equivalent called ‘Goodnight’, which caters more to modern living and maintains its versatility.
