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>

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 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.

Designer

Patricia UrquiolaPatricia Urquiola
A gifted Spanish architect and designer, Patricia Urquiola now lives and works in Milan. Though from a sociocultural point of view, she is very attached to the Spanish tradition, her studies influenced her to such an extent that she became of the most important figures of modern Italian design. She takes into consideration the impact that her products have on the vast public. She focuses on the design of exchangeable units without using modular elements, and successfully creates environments designed to encourage positive feelings and company.

There is very little that Patricia Urquiola has not done in the field of design. From interiors to furniture to wallpaper, she has gifted the design world with her innovative thoughts and ideas. To say her work is experimental with both form and material doesn't do justice to the imagination, the creative flair and the enduring practicality that characterizes her designs. Both she and her products have been celebrated and received many esteemed awards, including being selected for the Italian Design 2001 exhibition and for International Design Yearbook 1999 and 2001. At the 2006 Design Awards, she was crowned the Furniture Designer of the Year. Her recent work includes projects for De Padova, Moroso, B&B Italia, Kartell, and others.

Comments about Kartell Usame Table:

The etchings of the ginkos on the table are very subtle and elegant, and the built-in magazine rack is very convenient. The table looks pretty in the living room, although the height is rather lower than I expected. (memo to self: read dimensions more carefully in future!)
