Kartell adds yet another piece to its furniture collection, the commode. Starck has taken a new look at it and the Kartell-style commode evokes the lines of classic furniture but with a contemporary accent in Its transparency and plastic. Corners and curves, straight lines and sinuous lines play over its surfaces and spark an intriguing game of eye-catching perspectives and reflections.

Ghost Buster, with three open frontal shelves and sitting on four bifacial legs, is the largest plastic monobloc ever made in the world of furnishings - just another successful demonstration of Kartell's determination to break down the barriers of technical challenges.

As one of the best-known contemporary designers in the world, Philippe Starck has placed honesty and integrity at the core of his designs producing quality products with longevity & durability. He seems to understand, better than others our dreams, our desires, our needs, and our responsibility to the future, as well as the overriding need to respect his fellow citizens by making his work a political and civic act.

Ghost buster is suitable for indoor/outdoor use, available in two sizes and your choice of color options.

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 École 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 François 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.
