Kartell

Kartell was founded in 1949 and boasts over 65 years of history, masterfully recounted through a product line unique for its variety and originality, composed of objects that express the language and atmosphere of the period in which they were created, but at the same time, are absolutely contemporary, and bear many other values and messages. All this has made them an integral part of the domestic landscape.

Creativity and technology, form and functionality, quality and innovation: an extraordinary combination of factors, along with a strategic vision of distribution have contributed to the lasting success of Kartell. A leader in design, Kartell addresses an international clientele with a collection unique in originality, variety and depth of range.

The products are multifunctional and cross-sectional, easy to use and with undeniable visual appeal. Colors, irony, a feast for the senses, transparency effects and unique shapes for unique items: Kartell products are immediately recognized worldwide for the excitement they create, their durable functionality and undisputed quality. The continuous evolution in how we use materials and experimentation with new technologies to discover new properties are fundamental in developing Kartell products, both in terms of our quest for functionality and for the development of new aesthetic qualities. Thanks to this constant search, we have been able to introduce glazing, transparency, flexibility, weather resistance, softness and touch.

World famous designers collaborate with Kartell, including Philippe Starck, Ron Arad, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Anna Castelli Ferrieri, Antonio Citterio, Michele De Lucchi, Patrick Jouin, Ferruccio Laviani, Piero Lissoni, Patricia Urquiola, Marcel Wanders, Tokujin Yoshioka, Vico Magistretti, Alberto Meda, Enzo Mari, Paolo Rizzatto and Maarten Van Severen. It is a creative team which, together with Kartell, has developed a special intuition through dialogue and the continual exchange of design ideas. This has served to establish a perfect balance between each designer’s project experience and the company’s potential and demands.

Hello everyone, 

We hope everyone is staying healthy and well!

In accordance to the SF Bay Area "Shelter in Place" mandate we are doing our part to help stem the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Please know that we here at Arkitektura San Francisco have decided to close both our showrooms effective Tuesday, March 17th until further notice. 

During this time, we will be working remotely and are here to support you. 
In preparation we have available visual presentations of our showroom, enabling you to virtually see what is on our showroom floor currently. We can guide you through product selections, with finishes, fabric and leather options. We will in turn get samples to you as soon as they are available to us.

Most of our vendors have confirmed that in the interest of their team's safety, they are also closing during this time. Therefore, please note, that we are experiencing delays in both production and shipping. We are working closely with all of our partners and we will make sure to update you all as soon as any new information is provided to us. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us or to our operations team if you have any questions. We are here to help. 

From all of us at Arkitektura, we hope to hear and chat with you very soon!
