Stone Stool by Kartell
designed by Marcel Wanders
A simple shape with a very precious appearance. Made with an essential symmetrical linear shape which is reminiscent of an hourglass, its surface is simply extraordinary: it's irregular and comprised of a myriad of geometrical facets which reflect the light and create a striking and unique play of colors, much like a diamond. Because of its jewel-like nature, Stone is offered in the colors of the precious stones. Stone may also be used as an elegant side table.
MATERIALS & MEASUREMENTSMaterials: Transparent or batch-dyed polycarbonate
Dimensions: 18" h x 13.3" diameter
ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATIONContrary 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 products). Thus, Kartell products can be easily recycled. In order to simplify the recycling process, the various components of Kartell products 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 different kinds of plastic and their effective recycling.
