Kartell enlists US creatives to reimagine its ’Bourgie’ table lamp
Earlier this year, Kartell celebrated one of its most iconic pieces - Ferruccio Laviani’s Bourgie lamp - with an exhibition of fourteen reinterpretations by a roster of international designers. This month the project has been expanded further, with the Bourgie being handed over to a group of American creatives, the results on display at the Greene Street showroom until 26 May - coinciding with New York Design Week - presenting a further exploration of the lamp’s design and a tribute to its execution. It completes a big month for the brand, which has also just unveiled a re-designed and enhanced website, including for the first time an extensive e-store. Acting as an exploratory hub, the site allows users to delve deeper into the brand’s history, to browse products and to access information about new projects and ventures. They can also admire other icons from Kartell’s past, in addition to the legendary Bourgie.
