Kartell opens a flagship store in Florence
Milan's leading high-end design company just a few steps from Piazza del Duomo
Kartell's new and scenic Flagship Store opens in the heart of Florence, in Via dei Pescioni, just a few steps from Piazza del Duomo and all the most important monuments of the Tuscan capital, with a space of about 300 square metres. The rooms of a historic Florentine palazzo characterised by columns and vaulted ceilings host all the latest novelties presented at the Salone del Mobile and the products that have marked the brand's history. For the occasion, the lily, the emblem par excellence of Florence, will be the backdrop to the layouts presented in the showcases.
In the large rooms into which the space is divided, different product concepts are represented with their infinite declinations, showing different furnishing solutions, all however united by the constant search for technology and new materials and Kartell's ability to know how to evolve, innovating.
The opening of Kartell's new Flagship store in Florence brings the brand to the international public in the city of art with its immense heritage of beauty, which is also one of Kartell's keywords together with Design, Innovation, Industrial Production, Quality and Sustainability that are the brand's founding features.
The Flagship store in Florence offers a series of suggestions where the K-Wait sofa system by Rodolfo Dordoni mingles with the Thierry tables by Piero Lissoni presented in new colours. Upholstered furniture is also the protagonist in the set dedicated to Patricia Urquiola and the Lunam system flanked by the Undique collection of side and low tables and the Lunat desk combined with the Charla armchair. Space is also given to Philippe Starck's new proposals with the Eleganza Ela and Eleganza Nia chairs in which the designer draws inspiration from the world of Haute Couture.
All the projects linked to the theme of sustainability are well represented starting with the proposals made of recycled material such as Antonio Citterio's Re-Chair chair created with recycled illy Iperespresso coffee capsules and the new A.I. stool light sustainable both in terms of material and production process: from a single mould it is in fact possible to produce three models. The spacious rooms of the store also accommodate the entire range of Philippe Starck's Smart Wood Collection, capable of adapting to different furnishing solutions.
There are also many new proposals dedicated to the lighting world with Philippe Starck's Khan chandelier, which combines eighteenth-century eclecticism with contemporary minimalism, and Ferruccio Laviani's Mini Geen-a lamp, which join the rich catalogue dedicated to the lighting world.
