Kartell is now at DZINE
DZINE recently gained representation of the Italian manufacturer Kartell. With Kartell's San Francisco location closing it was the perfect opportunity for the company to move into DZINE!
Kartell's creative team includes internationally recognized designers such as Ron Arad, Anna Castelli Ferrieri, Antonio Citterio, Michele De Lucchi, Patrick Jouin, Ferruccio Laviani, Piero Lissoni, Vico Magistretti, Alberto Meda, Enzo Mari, Paolo Rizzatto, Maarten Van Severen, Philippe Starck, Patricia Urquiola, and Tokujin Yoshioka. The continuous exchange of ideas between designer and company, has influenced the development of new materials and forms, allowing for the evolution of the brand. Kartell's long history is best exhibited through the company's products, which express the language and the atmosphere of the period in which they were created. By incorporating contemporary values and messages they have become an integral part of our domestic environment. These products have gained prestigious international awards during the company’s fifty-nine years in business, including nine 'Compasso d'Oro' (Golden Compasses). The 'Compasso d'Oro' was the first design prize awarded in Europe and over time has become the most important award in this field.
