Kartell goes Taschen

gillo_1Last night i was at the Kartell party for the launch of the book celebrating the 60 years of history of the brand, in other words the history of plastic in italian design.

After the words by Philippe Daverio, Claudio Luti, Miss Taschen and Gillo Dorfles we’been invited to enter the museum of Kartell (beatifully planned and carried out by Ferruccio Laviani).

But the issue is the book!!!!

Absolutely fantastic. A huge collection of plastic best sellers planned by some of the best designers of the world  witnessing the Kartell attitude to precision, passion, love for every single project carried out in the last 60 years.

Is quite big in terms of size, and is full of descriptions, sketches, images, drawings and deatils not only about the projects but also about the momentum in the design history, explaining how a small Italian factory has been capable to became a world leader brand.
