By Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec The Bouroullec brothers, two designers with a highly iconic, sophisticated and conceptual style, have designed the transparent polycarbonate Papyrus chair for Kartell. An admirable marriage of simplicity and refinement, grace and memory, Papyrus is a remake of the archetypal antique rush chair, from a time when chair structures were decisive and strong. This chair combines a translucent support with a slender vertical pebbling, running along the entire outside of the rounded backrest, with its soft and snug lines. The seat is comfortable and welcoming, and the entire structure is light. Papyrus’ wide range of brand-new “old-fashioned” colors make the play of the worked surfaces even more evident and attractive. Perfect for public and residential establishments.
Creativity and technology, glamour and functionality, quality and innovation: an extraordinary combination of factors, along with a strategic vision of distribution have contributed to the lasting success of Kartell. A leader in design, Kartell addresses an international clientele with a collection unique in originality, variety and depth of range. Kartell was created in 1949 and boasts 60 years of history, masterfully recounted through a product line unique for its variety and originality, composed of objects that express the language and atmosphere of the period in which they were created, but at the same time, are absolutely contemporary, and bear many other values and messages.
