Milan, Design Week 2012: Kartel GOES ROCK

Big turnout for Lenny Kravitz and Philippe Starck

Events, April 20, 2012
Triennale Shanghai Italian Center

A veritable sea of fans, totally wild for Lenny Kravitz, a guest of honor along with Philippe Starck, at the Kartell Goes Rock event on 17 March at the Milan flagship store.

The American superstar, along with his Kravitz Design Team, has indeed created, exclusively for Kartell, a collection of six Mademoiselle chairs (from French designer Philippe Starck,) which have been reinterpreted, upholstered with materials that were chosen jointly with Starck. A combination of python, fur, leather and interwoven weft yarns, resulting in a final product that honors the musician’s wild spirit.

A rock icon, a design icon and an icon of the industrial world united in an event that has shown yet again the playful, ironic and glamorous soul of the brand.
