Fabio Novembre - Eur and Lantern
The designer’s creativity, vision and irony combine with Kartell’s ability to create high-quality and technologically innovative industrial products. Fabio Novembre’s three new products epitomise this unique synergy and are sure to become new lifestyle icons of the brand, which uses the Cologne stage to pay tribute to this new partnership.
The EUR stool was inspired by EUR in Rome; it is a cube printed with a reproduction of the architecture of the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana and can be used for various functions, as seating or as a small table, finding its place in many different environments and styles. This new object in the Kartell collection is as timeless as the Palazzo, which has become one of our country’s most fascinating architectural icons.
LANTERN is an original portable LED lamp, a transparent “rechargeable lantern”, injection moulded, available in a variety of colours, and recharging on a wireless base. The light is projected via a graphic effect of the design.
In Fabio Novembre’s COMPONIBILI SMILE, the classic round Componibili hole becomes a wink, like an emoji that’s a perfect fit for spaces dedicated to children.
For the occasion, the Cologne Flagship Store will host a Design Talk at 7 pm featuring Kartell President Claudio Luti and Fabio Novembre, and moderated by Marcus Fairs, Dezeen founder and editor-in-chief.
