"I Saloni" The fabulous world of Kartell

Kartell Art Director Ferruccio Laviani created the most irreverent, extraordinary and fun installation
at "I Saloni".
A Sumo wrestler is crashing into "Misses Flower Power" vases for outdoor by Starck and Quitlet, in a new version, made of more precious material than last production.

"Panier" by Bouroullec brothers in an Indian installation

Ghost Buster...the line Ghost this year has added a bed side table and a chest of drawers with classic form

The famous Lou Lou Ghost for kids needed also to be at the Furniture Fair 2009

"Masters" by Starck and Quitlet (who continue to design for Kartell) is a new chair which evokes the lines of three masterpieces: "Serie 7" by Jacobsen, "Tulip" by Saarinen and "Eiffel" by Eames, hence the name.

"Fleur di Novembre" by Fabio Novembre, a new cooperation
between Kartell and the Italian designer.  The table will be produced in a few months.

"Frilly Stool" by Patricia Urquiola in a spectacular installation by Laviani with a series of whirling dervishes.

Transparencies, colours, creativity, fun!

Kartell has such clever and cool items! I love my Bourgie lamp and Louis Ghost chair.

I'll have to check out the new Ghost bedside tables...and what's this about a chest of drawers? I can't wait to see that!
