The award-winning Bubble Club Sofa by Kartell has gained international recognition since receiving the 2001 Compasso d'Oro award.

The sleek design of the sofa, which sits two comfortably, is made entirely of plastic, making it not only one of the world's most unique sofas, but also one of the most versatile.

The Bubble Club Collection
World-renowned designer, Philippe Starck, collaborated with Kartell to produce an award-winning collection now found in countries across the world. Kartell is known for its technology and innovation in the world of plastics and design. When combined with Starck's creative genius, the Bubble Club collection was created, featuring the Bubble Club Sofa, Bubble Club Chair, and Bubble Club Side Table. The collaboration originally began with the Club Chair, which was awarded Italy's most prestigious design award, the Compasso d'Oro in 2001. This recognition proved that Kartell and Starck were on to something.
Using the unique material, polyethylene, for the Club Sofa's construction, Kartell ensures not only a beautiful piece of industrial creation, but the light plastic also allows the sofa to mask its durable strength and resistance to abrasion and weather. The scratch-resistant, fade-resistant, and weather-resistant Club Collection is a perfect combination for indoor as well as outdoor furniture. Customers who have purchased and enjoyed the Bubble Club Sofa have come back to Kartell to add to their Bubble Club family, oftentimes creating an outdoor family space on a patio overlooking the pool, or adding comfort to an office lounge, providing sleek lines to a sophisticated workforce.
Whether you're in the market for one piece or several, the Bubble Club collection is a solid choice and endorsement that you value industrial design, comfort, and lasting durability from a company that embraces an ever-changing society.

Cleaning and Care: Use a soft damp cloth with soap or a liquid detergent, preferably diluted with water. Do not use acetone, trichloroethylene, ammonia or other corrosive plastic cleaners. Avoid ethyl alcohol, which dulls the surface. We recommend always using a damp cloth to prevent plastic surfaces from becoming charged with static electricity which attracts dust. Also avoid abrasive solvents, cleaning powders and creams, steel wool or rough sponge cloths.
Contrary to the common idea, products in plastic materials are highly ecological for the reason that they can be recycled (with the exception of polyurethane, little used in Kartell seating). In addition, the use of plastics reduces the need for living plants, such as trees, which are costly and take years to replace. In order to simplify the recycling process, the various components of Kartell furniture can be easily separated and reduced to elements made of one single material. Moreover, the plastic parts of each product carry, clearly printed, an identification mark to determine the correct classification of the seven different kinds of plastic and their effective recycling.
