Today, continuous technological research allows Kartell to use wood in an absolutely innovative way: thanks to a special patent, the wood is machined with a mould that can extend the limit of curvature of the panel and create the frame of the chair with sinuous curves. “WOODY answers a desire and also a need for wood.
This collection is not a fantasy because it is based on the basic human need to be surrounded with signs reminding nature and predicting the future. After more than 30 years of research, we have finally created wooden seats that really express, thanks to the alliance with plastic, the true essence of wood.” Philippe Starck
