Thermoplastic technopolymer

This year gold and red, the colors that symbolize Christmas, enliven two of Kartell's cult products: Philippe Starck's Gnomes and Anna Castelli Ferrieri's Componibili modular units. Offered here are Philippe Starck's Gnomes. These playful Gnomes, Attila and Napoleon, are available for the first time, in a gilded version emphasising their irreverence and cuteness.

These very special characters are striking on account of their originality and non-conformism. They were conceived to furnish any environment with an eye towards practicality. An exciting addition to the Kartell collection. These limited edition Gnomes have been cast in gold plastic and are available for a limited time.

Philippe Starck

Paris-born Philippe Patrick Starck (b. 1949) has a wide range of design, but is very well known for his consumer goods and interiors. He was educated in Paris at the ╔cole Camondo and founded his first design firm, which specialized in inflatable objects, in 1968. The next year, he became art director of his firm along with Pierre Cardin. He has worked both independently as an interior designer and as a product designer since 1975. After designing the private apartment interiors for French President Franšois Mitterrand in 1982, his career began to climb significantly. In 1986 he joined Domus Academy Department of Design as an associate lecturer. Two of Starck's famous designs include stylized toothbrushes (1989) and a sleek juicer dubbed the Juicy Salif created for Alessi in 1990. The Juicy Salif has become an affordable and popular cult item.
Kartell's image and its 59 years of history are described through the company's products. The development, the corporate strategies, the attention the company has paid to technology, the project and the design can be appreciated by observing the products Kartell has produced. Kartell's products express the language and the atmosphere of the period in which they were created, but at the same time, they are "contemporary articles," they incorporate many other values and messages and this is why they have become an integral part of our domestic design world.
