DESIGN FOR CHILDREN

Master in Product Design in partnership with Kartell museo – September 2019

Intro

Known for its iconic furniture and household products, Kartell has for decades been a symbol of Italian design around the world. Kartell furnishings combine high functionality with sleek aesthetics, innovative manufacturing technologies, and new materials used in ethical and poetic ways. Color, irony, transparency, unique shapes, and sensory play are other key ingredients of Kartell design. The company was founded in 1949 by the chemical engineer Giulio Castelli. Since 1988, it has been run by Claudio Luti, who transformed the brand into an empire with flagship stores in more than 130 countries. Luti (who currently serves as president of Milan’s Salone del Mobile) opened the Kartell Museum in 1999 and took Kartell furnishings into more than 2500 retailers in over 130 countries.

Brief

Kartell is currently developing the line Kartell Kids, a special collection for kids. For this scholarship competition, your challenge is to work in this area, focusing not necessarily on furniture but rather on developing a fun and elegant object that children can play with. The material must be plastic, and the outcome should integrate technology and materials into a remarkable design solution for kids.
