Kartell Design Receives a 2008 Good Design Award

Kartell's Mr Impossible chair has earned a prestigious 2008 Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design. The oldest competition of its kind, Good Design has evaluated entries based on innovation, form, materials and construction, concept, function, utility, and aesthetic appeal since 1950. In 2008, the museum received hundreds of submissions from more than 48 nations. The Mr Impossible chair will be featured with other award recipients on the Chicago Athenaeum website.

Coming from the company that revolutionized plastic, Mr Impossible is one of Kartell's latest products that pushed technological boundaries.

Designed by Philippe Starck in his 20th year of designing for Kartell, Mr Impossible is a unique egg shaped chair comprised of two plastic shells joined together by a new laser technology created by Kartell for this particular project.

The result is a piece that is strong, durable and most importantly, completely Kartell.
