Design Story

The large square Componibili element belongs to the popular Componibili collection, a series of storage classics designed by Anna Castelli Ferrieri for Italian manufacturer Kartell. Kartell was founded near Milan in 1949 by the chemist Giulio Castelli, the husband of the architect Anna Ferrieri. Anna Castelli Ferrieri served as Kartell's chief designer and in addition to stewarding the company towards its reputation for high quality contemporary furniture design, Castelli Ferrieri also contributed the practical pedestals to that growing reputation. Available in a range of sizes and colours the practical Kartell pedestals feature a large storage compartment and can be combined with other elements to create an individual storage solution, castors and a closure top complete the system. The effortless universality of the Kartell Componibili system make it suitable for use in any situation; be that, for example, as organisation aid in the office or in the bathroom, as a side table with storage possibility in the living room or as a bedside table in the bedroom. The Kartell Componibili family has won numerous international awards and is represented in permanent collections of the New York Museum of Modern Art and the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
