The kids room is the new battleground when it comes to design and interiors, with a number of heavyweight design houses launching products aimed at little ones. Saying that, Kartell’s kids collection is definitely the pick so far.
That’d because the design house has thrown everything at it. By that, we mean that some if its biggest names seem to be involved in the range, either producing new designs or reworking classic pieces for smaller people.
You can see a number of the products pictured here, but if you want to put names to designs, we can do that for you. Japanese designer Nendo is responsible for the rocking horse and the ‘smile’ stools, Philippe Starck is behind the ‘Airway’ swing, Piero Lissoni has produced the toy car and tractor and Ferruccio Laviani is the name behind the games table.
On top of that, you can also get Starck’s classic Louis Ghost chair in miniature form and with an option to add graphics to the back, with similar patterns available for mini versions of Kartell’s range of tables plus its trademark lighting.
Just launched at the Salone del Mobile furniture fair, the designs should be in the stores later this year. NO specific date or prices, so do keep an eye in Kartell retailers such as Made in Design or Nest.
