About the Designer

Alberto MedaAlberto Meda

From 1973, he was the technical manager of Kartell, in charge of the development of projects of furniture and plastic laboratory equipments. Beginning in 1979, he was a freelance industrial designer for various companies, such as Alfa Romeo Auto, Alessi, Brevetti Gaggia, Legrand, Omron Japan, Olivetti, and Vitra. Over the years, he has had many opportunities for teaching, research, and exhibitions. His numerous awards include the European Design Prize in 1994 for his work with Luceplan, 1999 "Designer of the year" -Salon du Meuble de Paris, and 2006 "Design Plus" and "Light of the future" for MIX led lamp by Luceplan.

Coming to design from engineering, Alberto Meda brought with him a pragmatic mind, and an attention to details in materials and production process, in addition to formal concerns. Meda's recognizable stamp of elegant simplicity shapes designs that are at once modern in form and organic in feel.

Environmental Information

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 products). Thus, Kartell furniture 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.
