Kartell and La DoubleJ recently came together to create a colourful marriage of plastics with pattern.
La DoubleJ, a new Milanese lifestyle brand specializing in vintage printcentric fashion and homewares joined forces with Kartell’s magical plastics heritage.
The first piece in the collection is the Patricia Urquiola-designed Clap chair. The rounded form of the armchair will come with an upholstered body and plastic legs in contrasting colors.
There are four options: Geometrico, designed in the 1970s; 1920s-designed; 1920s-designed Olive; and Picnic, again from the 1920s. The second is the square-edged Philippe Starck-designed Madame Chair, a boxier option that will come upholstered in a number of vintage prints: Lilium, designed in the 1990s; Uccellini Blu from the 1940s; 1980s-designed Ruote; and rooster-patterned Galletti. Lastly is Kartell’s ground breaking Joe Colombo designed 4801 chair. Originally designed in 1965, it has been reimagined with an opaque white plastic body and fabric seat cushion in Geometric.
The rest of the collection is organized into three pattern-clashing vintage print families featuring furniture and table top items that are meant to be easily mixed and matched together.
