Just in time for Milan Fashion Week 2010, Kartell will introduce three new custom designs by Moschino for its Mademoiselle chair, which was originally designed by Philippe Starck in 2004.
The partnership between Kartell and Moschino was born in 2007 and has since expanded to include international design firms including Dolce&Gabbana, Valentino, Missoni, Burberry, Etro and Jean-Paul Gautier—each of which has applied its own style to the chair.
This year's introductions include Sketches, featuring a patchwork of original illustrations by Franco Moschino; Daisies, presenting a cheery shower of daisies that flutter down from the back to the seat against a black background; andBlack Hearts, dressed in Moschino's iconic black and white hearts print. The frame for all designs is transparent or glossy black polycarbonate.
Kartell will introduce 50 limited-edition red-and-white version of “Red Hearts” by Moschino, which will be available at Kartell.com and Yoox.com beginning next month.
