Color and imagination, but also an excellent technical mastery of the materials: with these weapons, Kartell has managed to make the most of a traditionally economical material such as plastic, creating products with a high design content perfect even for the  most luxurious homes. Founded in 1949 by the chemical engineer Giulio Castelli, Kartell started its production with small high-level design objects, developing over time on increasingly consistent sizes and shapes, thus arriving to offer colorful and functional furnishing accessories with affordable prices to everyone. Recognized the high potential of plastic materials and thanks to the fruitful collaboration with the architect Gino Colombini, in the following years Castelli was able to undertake a long series of experiments that led to the conquest of the first Compasso d'Oro in 1955. In those same years the lighting division was inaugurated with the first collection signed by the Castiglioni brothers.Read more

Anna Castelli Ferrieri
Anna Castelli Ferrieri (1918-2006) was an important Italian architect and designer. Daughter of Enzo Castelli, an exponent of the Milanese intellectual bourgeoisie of the early twentieth century, Anna oriented her studies towards architecture, graduating from the Polytechnic of Milan under Franco Albini. The rationalism of Albini, in whose studio she also worked for a few years after graduating, was the main point of reference for her style throughout her career. As an architect you concentrated mainly on the creation of interiors, associating yourself from 1959 to 1973 with Ignazio Gardella; among her most important works are the Alfa Romeo offices in Arese and the Kartell offices in Binasco. Her career as a designer was instead strongly influenced by the profession of her husband, the chemical engineer Giulio Castelli, founder of the Kartell plastics factory: this gave Anna Castelli Ferrieri the opportunity to develop the ever new possibilities of a continuously evolving material, giving life to enormously successful creations such as the 4953-54-55-56 series of stackable containers (now marketed under the name Componibili and which have become one of the great symbols of the company) or the 4870 chairs. Starting in the 1990s he extended his activity also to other brands, collaborating for example with Sambonet, Arflex and Ycami. She won, among other things, two Compassi d'Oro (1987,1984) and a Gold Medal at the Triennale (1947). Read more
