KARTELL is a beautiful Italian company, where at its heart were always merged innovation, design, and technology. Since its beginnings, the company has collaborated for over 70 years with big names in Architecture and Designs, such as Alessandro Mendini, Patricia Urquiola, Philippe Starck, Tokujin Yoshioka, Antonio Citterio, and more. From these unions were born many unique design objects, today available to the broad public.

Some of these unique design pieces I want to present to you today, share the why's I find them useful as much as beautiful. These objects have a relatively low cost for the design value they incorporate, so let me show you why it is worth spending some extra cash to enjoy a timeless piece of art from the list:

1. The clock AIR DU TEMPS Designed by Eugeni Quitllet (2017), particularly in the version GG, which is a transparent thermoplastic technopolymer in crystal and gold. Simple and elegant design, modern and stylish, great for any interiors, including the classical ones.

2.There is a marvelous place in Southern Italy, on the lands of the Puglia region, called Alberobello. Here, in the prehistoric age, the first trulli was constructed, a dry-wall construction, without mortar, of conical shape, easy to build, and easy to take off when needed. For its uniqueness and beauty, in 1996, this place, with its trulli constructions, became part of the UNESCO World Heritage.

It is where Fabio Novembre took his inspiration when designing this beautiful and unique tableware cookie container TRULLO (2019) made in a colorful transparent thermoplastic technopolymer.

9. “Shibuya” is the name of a center for youth fashion and culture, and its streets are the birthplace to many of Japan's fashion and entertainment trends! Moreover, it is one of the twenty-three city wards of Japan. Probably that is why its name is so appropriate to this simple shaped and marvelous vase SHIBUYA Designed by Christophe Pillet (2013), also winning the Good Design Award 2014! This vase is made of a highly resistant, innovative material polymethylmethacrylate and colored in multiple sections. Its cover has a central hole and can be used to hold flowers in the vase or as a separate accessory for tableware.
