We’re one step closer to covering the whole world with print! After debuting our collaboration with iconic Milanese furniture giant Kartell in April at Milan’s Salone del Mobile, we’re happy to report you can finally shop the stupendous collection online! Founded in Milan in 1949, Kartell is known the world over for their collaborations with contemporary designers on luxury furniture constructed in awesome Italian plastics.
We dove headfirst into the incredible Kartell archive to put our vintage-printed spin on a number of their best-selling pieces. Knockout seating is the center point of the collection, featuring Patricia Urquiola’s Clap Chair and Philippe Starck’s Madame Chair, both available in three prints each. We also gave a vintage pattern makeover to the iconic stackable Componobile storage cabinet – originally designed by Anna Castelli Ferrieri back in 1967 – and to some fabulously chic side tables. Plus, there are mountains of maximalist pillows and tabletop items all decked out in vintage prints we discovered in the Mantero archive. Everything comes in multiple patterns that are ready for instant mix-and-matching.
“Kartell is the coolest!” says JJ about La DoubleJ’s newest partners, “All of our collaborations are with the very best of Made in Italy brands. So, when it came to diving into furniture, there was no better place to go.” Get them while they’re hot, babe!
