Musician Lenny Kravitz partnered with Kartell to up the "rockstar" status of the Italian company's iconic Mademoiselle chair. Last week at Salone del Mobile in Milan, Kartell introduced the latest version of Philippe Starck's iconic chair.
Kravitz, who started Kravitz Design Inc in 2003, had the blessing of Starck, who also happens to be a good friend. Kravitz's six versions incorporate python, fur, leather and woven materials, upping the luxury content for the Italian company perhaps better known for its colorful plastics.
Also the talk of town: cult-fashion house Marni's first foray into furniture. The installation at its flagship store featured 100 chairs of brightly colored PVC, woven by ex-prisoners in Colombia.
The proceeds of sales help support the inmates as they transition out of incarceration.
