“Kartell loves the planet”: the Italian company advocates sustainable production
Kartell’s path towards a more sustainable production develops with new materials and new manufacturing processes. This spirit has inspired the manifesto “Kartell loves the planet”, which sums up the respect and responsibility for the environment with a claim.
A.I., designed by Philippe Starck for Kartell, is a chair made with recycled plastic. The main characteristic of this thermoplastic technopolymer is that it is made with pure materials, which keeps its structural properties unaltered. To make the A.I. chair, only waste material is used, obtaining a 100% recycled and certified material. An example of circular economy.
The new Componibili by Kartell, in the Bio plastic version
The historic Componibili by Kartell, the storage units designed by Anna Castelli Ferrieri in 1967, can now be produced in Bio plastic. Bio by Kartell is a material obtained from agricultural waste, which resembles plastic but is natural and biodegradable. Currently available in green, pink, dove gray, yellow.
Smart Wood: wood according to Kartell
With the Smart Wood collection, launched in 2018, Kartell debuted in the wood industry. This collection is innovative in that it requires minimum consumption of raw material, thanks to a processing that makes it possible to use a very thin layer of wood, bent with advanced technologies. Moreover, the wood used by Kartell has obtained the FSC certification and comes only from sustainably managed forests.
Finally, another important innovation is represented by the Aquaclean fabric, which can be cleaned just with water. Eco-friendly and pet-friendly, it prevents the formation of bacteria and dust mites, and has been designed to prevent tears, making its maintenance easier. [Text Spencer Foil]
