IMM Cologne 2017

Kartell and Antonio Citterio, 25 years together

Events, January 16, 2017
Kartell opens at Scalo Milano

Kartell celebrates a 25 year long collaboration with Antonio Citterio, one of the most influential designers of international standing with whom the company has written some of the most significant pages in the story of contemporary design.

The designer’s own creations will be protagonists of the tribute paid by Kartell to this time-honoured collaboration in its Cologne flagship store during IMM Cologne (16/22 January 2017), with a particular focus on the latest fruit of this synergy: the Multiplo industrial table line, an extensive product family of appealing design whose furnishing scope ranges from minimalist to decorative, from pop art to elegance, from bourgeois dining tables to an ideal bar table solution for contract projects. Versatile in its functions, its concept allows for customization by playing with form (square with rounded corners, round and oval) and different combinations of bases (central, two, three or four-star) and tops (plain unglazed ceramic or marble and glass finishes).

This tribute to Antonio Citterio underlines all the landmarks of this rich and fruitful collaboration which, starting from the Gastone trolley, now a brand icon, has continued for 25 years to churn out successful products for Kartell, such as the tables and stools of the Spoon family, the Glossy table and the Mobil modular storage system with drawers, which won the Compasso d’Oro international award in 1994.
