Whether its polycarbonate chairs, polyethylene sofas, or polypropylene furniture, no other furniture manufacturer has the creative boldness to craft traditional furniture items out of revolutionary materials.<br /><br />This penchant for doing things differently stands out in a number of Kartell's bestsellers- such as the Bubble Club group and the Ghost Chair series.<br /><br />Collaborating with Kartell are world famous designers including Ron Arad, Ronand and Erwan Bouroullec, Anna Castelli Ferrieri, and Philippe Starck. Kartell tables and chairs, such as the Four Table crafted by Ferruccio Laviani, come in multiple finishes, sizes, and materials, giving shoppers the ability to choose what's just right for them. Kartell's designers recognize that modern furniture often means modular furniture. Together with Kartell, these designers have developed a a special intuition through dialogue and the continual exchange of design ideas. Kartell chairs and lighting created under this framework personify vivid creativity and the bold pursuit of something original.<br /><br />Numerous bestsellers have had success because they exemplify the melding or established forms with technologically new materials. Many Kartell lighting products match this criteria, such as the Bourgie Lamp. This lamp takes a classic shape and fills it with batch-dyed polycarbonate. The Ghost Chair group by Phillipe Starck are another example. Other Kartell accessories are also new takes on everyday items. With some of the most iconic creations of the 20th century, Kartell continues to impress everyday while blending the lines between furniture and art. </span><!-- Google Code for Kartell Remarketing Remarketing List --><script type="text/javascript">/* <![CDATA[ */var google_conversion_id = 1072730250;var google_conversion_language = "en";var google_conversion_format = "3";var google_conversion_color = "ffffff";var google_conversion_label = "WHi0CIKAmwMQiqHC_wM";var google_conversion_value = 0;/* ]]> */</script><script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.googleadservices.com/pagead/conversion.js"></script><noscript><div style="display:inline;"><img height="1" width="1" style="border-style:none;" alt="" src="http://www.googleadservices.com/pagead/conversion/1072730250/?value=0&amp;label=WHi0CIKAmwMQiqHC_wM&amp;guid=ON&amp;script=0"/></div></noscript>

  • Q:

    I weigh 170 lbs. Would it be possible to use this item as a bookcase and stair, to access loft storage?

      A:

      No. This is made of ABS (a type of plastic) and would not do well as a step ladder on top of supporting the weight of books.

      Answered on 10/2/2011 by Melanie from Smart Furniture
  • Q:

    What is the maximum weight capacity of the system? Are there restrictions on weight and/or height? Can this be used to support a tabletop?

      A:

      The manufacturer does not provide a weight capacity for this system. Used as a room divider we recommend 5 cubes tall (72") but if against a wall you could go taller. It is made well and can support being filled with books but we can't even begin to guess on its capacity to hold a tabletop. It would probably work but we can't make any promises or guarantees.
