K-Waiting Dormeuse Chenile - Kartell

Color: Beige

The comfort of an embrace: the K-Waiting upholstered collection by Rodolfo Dordoni plays with the contrast between the formal simplicity of rigorous volumes and soft, rounded lines. The division between habitat and contract solutions is increasingly blurred in this collection too. The keyword is versatility. The wide range of delightful upholstery includes warm velvety fabrics, bouclé and other fabrics that, though plainer, always stand out for their striking weave. All fabrics are certified for contract use.

ABOUT KARTELL

Founded by Giulio Castelli in 1949, in the early years Kartell took its first steps to produce the distinctive design that would come to epitomise the 'Made in Italy’ label. In 1988 the company was acquired by Claudio Luti, the son-in-law of Giulio and Anna Castelli who had a background in fashion. With a love for perfection and tasteful design, this heralded a new start for the brand. Luti sought collaborations with designers and architects like Philippe Starck, Ron Arad, Antonio Citterio, Ferruccio Laviani, Piero Lissoni, Patricia Urquiola, Mario Bellini, Alberto Meda and Vico Magistretti, who were responsible for those products that soon came to symbolise the brand. The fresh approach to materials dictated the new direction and brought real turning points for Kartell.

In 1999 Kartell became the first company in the world to use polycarbonate to produce furnishing items. The result was La Marie, a completely transparent chair with modern, minimalist design which paved the way for Louis Ghost, still one of Kartell’s best sellers today. From this moment on, the company developed and explored the theme of transparency that has made it unique and original, continuing its research into the study of surfaces and shapes, that have made it possible to create products like nothing ever created before.

Today, Kartell is the perfect synthesis of its past and its ongoing projection into the future, combining the great heritage of corporate culture with the desire to explore new paths and engage in new experiences dominated by an intense passion for creation.

Kartell is known for its industrial production of the finest quality design objects, with remarkable technological content, Made in Italy. From the choice of innovative and certified materials, to the use of advanced technologies, Kartell is able to guarantee users of its products a collection in which technology, quality, resistance and durability are part of its DNA.
