Kartell and Liberty announce a three-part collaboration, launching at Salone del Mobile during Milan Design Week this April ‘24. United by their joint pursuit of quality and elegance, Liberty and Kartell unveil a capsule collection of limited furniture designs alongside a curation of collaborative fabrics, offering a harmonious blend across design and decorative arts.

“This new partnership is the logical result of both parties having a rich history on which to draw enjoying a reputation for innovation, beauty and elegance in their respective areas, and having the same ability to create a uniquely transversal lifestyle.” - Lorenza Luti - Director of Marketing & Retail at Kartell.

Bespoke furniture designs include a collaborative H.H.H - HER HIGHEST HIGHNESS chair, offering an innovative take on Philippe Starck’s newest and most regal design for Kartell, launching this year. Crafted using 2.0 polycarbonate and innovative graphic impression techniques, the H.H.H chair spotlights six Liberty fabrics designs across the seat covering, referencing bespoke and archival designs in a series of printed and re-upholstered models. In addition, Liberty re-works Kartell’s Piazza tray by Fabio Novembre, printed in Liberty’s ‘Artemis’ print across four colourways.

“The prospect of adding a decorative element to Kartell's HHH chair was so exciting. From the beginning we were determined to pay homage to the design classic by incorporating intricate, hand-drawn motifs whilst respecting the structural aspects of Philippe Starck’s design. We imagined lush foliage to intertwine seamlessly with the furniture, where Liberty prints would climb over the pieces, creating a flourishing garden of vibrant colour.” - Mary-Ann Dunkley, Liberty Design Director - Product & Fabrics

The two furniture designs launch alongside a curation of bold floral and geometric fabrics for use across Kartell’s iconic Pop sofa and Trix Pouf by Piero Lissoni and Cara armchair by Philippe Starck and Sergio Schito. Reimagining archival Liberty fabrics to new and striking scales in exclusive colourways, the capsule collection comprises 10 designs spanning indoor and outdoor fabrics.

Available in four bespoke colourways, Patricia presents a richly stylised, floral motif created in the 1990s and inspired by Liberty’s beloved Tree of Life artworks. Artemis draws inspiration from exquisitely hand-painted florals from the 1930s, featuring exuberant mixed floral blooms and delicate blossom flowers.
