As part of the 50th anniversary of the Salone del Mobile (Milan Furniture Fair), Kartell is launching a charity project called “Kartell ? Milano” as a tribute to the city of Milan. Many professionals from various creative fields such as fashion to design to photography and even music and cuisine are participating in this event in showcasing new and original collections.
Designer Tokujin Yoshioka will present “MI-AMI”, which is a re-invented piece of the Kartell icon product “AMI AMI”, first presented in 2008. “MI-AMI” is finished up with mirror evaporation. With the concept inspired by famous quote of Plato (427-347B.C.), “At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet,” “MI-AMI” brings the brilliant sparkles to the city of Milan.
This piece will be part of a charity auction organized by Kartell to benefit the Fondazione Umberto Veronesi to promote the progress of science.
