Design for Children
Founded in 1949 by Giulio Castelli and now run by Claudio Luti, Kartell is one of the symbols of Italian design around the world. A success story told through an incredible series of products that have become contemporary design icons.
Colour, irony, transparency, unique shapes and a play of the senses are the key ingredients for designing a Kartell product, together with High-Tech manufacturing resources.
The common aspect of all their products is the combination of high functionality with nice aesthetics, research, innovative technologies and use of new materials in an ethical and poetic way.
Lately the company has been developing a special collection for kids.
The challenge given for this competition is to work in this area, focusing not necessarily on furniture but rather on something playful, yet elegant.
This could be any kind of object to play with. The material must be plastic and the outcome should be an integration of technology and materials shaped in a remarkable design solution for kids.
The works must be mailed to Domus Academy by and not later than 5th October 2018.
Candidates will be informed about the results of the competition by e-mail on 22nd October 2018.
