Seoul ospita Kartell e racconta una fantastica storia tra plastica e design

Con un allestimento scenografico ed emozionante, dal 13 settembre 2017 al 4 marzo 2018, il D Museum di Seoul ospita la mostra Plastic Fantastic, che racconterà l’evoluzione del design Kartell dagli anni ’50 ad oggi. I valori della produzione industriale e del design italiano saranno trasmessi al pubblico con lo stile del giovane e dinamico Museo coreano attraverso installazioni ad altissimo contenuto emozionale.
