For over 60 years, Kartell has had plastic in its very DNA. And never before as in the 2010 collection have results demonstrated that Kartell’s expertise plays a prominent role in the design of the products. Ghost Buster is the biggest single block of plastic (18 kg of PMMA) ever produced in the history of furniture. The Bloom lamp is an industrial product but has the forms and stylistic complexity of a handcrafted piece. The Front Page is a magazine holder that can be taken apart. The Moon bowls seem to be made from glass and attest to the work carried out by Kartell of elevating the level of plastic. Tip Top is distinguished by the combination of transparent base and coloured top, obtained without glue or screws or other material: the top is inserted while hot inside the stem, an operation that depends on the absolute precision of the moulds. Finally, the Sofia boot is made in soft plastic like leather.
