Design Story

The large round Componibili element is part of the famous Componibili collection, a series of design classics created by Anna Castelli Ferrieri for Kartell, an Italian manufacturer with nearly forty years of tradition. Established by the chemist Giulio Castell in the mid 1940s, Kartell initially focussed on the production of industrial and scientific objects before slowly adding ever more household and furniture items to their portfolio. A leading role in this process was played by Giulio Castell's wife Anna Castelli Ferrieri. Following completion of her architecture studies at the Politecnico di Milano Anna Ferrieri established her own architecture practice in 1946, and in 1949 was appointed chief designer at Kartell. The large round element is a single Componibili component which can be connected to further elements by simply plugging them together and which thus can be used in all rooms of a house; be that as an organizational aid in the office, discrete yet practical storage in the bathroom, as a side table with storage possibility in the living room or as a bedside table. The Componibili family have won several awards and are today represented in all prestigious museum collections including the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
