Cologne IMM 2015, Urquiolawelt!

Kartell's tribute to the Spanish designer

Kartell at the Italian Embassy in Paris

For IMM 2015 Kartell dedicates a surprising setting in its flagship store in the German city to Patricia Urquiola.

The world of Patricia Urquiola for Kartell is an infinite concept of forms and colours taking shape by combining plastic and fabric and creating designs with a strong and recognisable identity. The Spanish designer’s culture is reflected in each of her creations and with her magic alchemy she models an innovative idea of form and function using the high technology provided by Kartell.

This is the “wonderland” of Urquiola for Kartell where the working with textures, surfaces and materials takes precedence at times over the definition of form which becomes function.

In addition to the Jellies Family line, one of the latest arrivals at Kartell in the re-launch of the collections dedicated to tableware we find the Usame coffee table and the T-Table, the Frilly and Comback chairs, the interior design pieces such as Matelassé and Jelly, the Soft line of sofas and the Foliage armchairs.

A place of honour is reserved for the Clap armchair: the new chair designed for the contract sector combines the industrial technology of Kartell in its processing of plastic with the softness of elegant and functional fabrics in melanges or solid colours, both of which are suitable for the most varied furnishing schemes and available in many colour combinations.
