Kartell items are universally celebrated throughout the world for their unmistakable character, durability, and aesthetic appeal. Featuring unique and versatile furniture including modern lighting, seating, and storage pieces, Kartell has been continuously pushing the limits of modern design for over 50 years. During this time Kartell has received numerous international awards including the prestigious Golden Compass Award, an honor that has been bestowed upon the brand an amazing 9 times. Seamlessly blending form and function by working with a team of internationally renowned designers including Ferrucio Laviani, Kartell has achieved worldwide success by implementing superior industrial design with modern designer innovation.
Ferrucio Laviani is an Italian designer known for his ability to flawlessly blend the classical styles of his mentors with the more innovative and unique modern design trends of our time. It is for this reason that Laviani has been dubbed by many as the past, present, and future of design. His Bourgie Table Lamp for example has been acclaimed for its masterful joining together of both classic baroque design elements with modern innovation. The base of this lamp features Baroque ornate design, but the lamp itself is comprised entirely or transparent polycarbonate, making it almost ironic in nature. The ground-breaking design also allows for the lamp to be assembled at 3 different heights and has been immensely popular throughout the modern community as both a desk and table lamp. The simplicity of modern furniture meets the sophistication of time-honored design in a technique seldom found in today’s lighting world and furniture world.
I love his design! Especially the first two pictures
