Kartell's Milan Salone Internazionale del Mobile stand plays to one of the company's key strengths – its impressive collection.
In the third of our series of interviews from this year’s Milan Furniture Fair with some of the creative industries’ leading figures, we meet Lorenza Luti, marketing and retail director of established Italian brand Kartell, which, after 50 years in business, continues to innovate in the use of its signature material – plastic.
Amidst the frenzy of Milan’s Salone del Mobile, Architonic’s editors met up with a number of prominent designers. In this film, 19 creatives including Erwan Bouroullec, Benjamin Hubert, Patricia Urquiola, Werner Aisslinger, Monica Förster, Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance, Edward Barber, Luca Nichetto and designers of Claesson Koivisto Rune practice explain how they prepare for the fair, why it is important to be in Milan and how the show influences their work.
