IMM Cologne 2009
Kartell + Bouroullec: it's Papyrus time
Presented with great success at the 2008 Furniture Fair, the new polycarbonate theatre chair Papyrus, designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Kartell was presented in Cologne on 21 January at a dedicated event at the Kartell flagship store at Hahnenstrasse 11. A visible combination of simplicity, refinement, grace and memory, Papyrus reinterprets the archetype of old wicker chairs, when the structure had a decisive and often-cited look. Special guests at the event at the Kartell flagship in Cologne included the Ronan brothers and Erwan Bouroullec. Alongside Papyrus, new products that had just gone into production were visible to the public: the Dr. YES chair designed by Philippe Starck with Eugeni Quitllet and the new collection of “Glue Cinderella” ballet flats designed by the Italian brand .normaluisa for Kartell.
