Kartell Lighting

Bloom Pendant Light from Kartell

The history of the Italian furniture manufacturer Kartell began in the early 50s with the production of car parts made of plastic. Later, the Italian manufacturer moved on to produce laboratory equipment before expanding its portfolio with numerous furnishings and eventually developed from the 1970s into one of the most important producers of designer furniture and home accessories in Europe. Working in close cooperation with renowned international designers Kartell are constantly realising new, surprising, practical objects, including lighting objects. Kartell lighting such as the Bourgie lamp by Ferruccio Laviani are among the famous classics of the company, and, and as with much of the company's lighting portfolio, impress through the interplay of transparency, colour and lightness; combinations which allow the Kartell table, wall and pendant lights to express the infinite possibilities of plastic in ever new and unique ways.

100 Years of Positionable Light @ the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg

...Lighting design makes it positionable, is one of those ways lighting designers make the intangibility of light's energy a tangible good, make light useful and practical, and as 100 Years of Positionable Light very elegantly, coherently, and satisfyingly nerdily, underscores, while positionable light may not have arrived with the primordial glow of the Big Bang, it is a functionality of light that was sought as soon as technology made it possible, and a functionality of light which designers have continued to evolve and develop over the decades, and will continue to do so, for who can imagine a world without a lamp you can freely position with one hand...
