Italian contemporary plastic furniture brand Kartell is making a clear departure from its signature style with a new collection of metal furniture, aptly named Precious Kartell, soon to be unveiled at the Milan Furniture Fair in April. "We want to focus attention in coming years even more on quality and preciousness, on the glamour and 'luxury' of Kartell plastics, presented with brand-new, exclusive and glossy metal finishes in gold, bronze, silver, gunmetal grey, and copper," says the brand's spokesperson. Kartell's bestsellers and iconic designers, including Masters, Componibili, Jelly, Matelassé, Shanghai, and Dune, will all be re-envisioned in shiny metallic finishes.
