SIR GIO (KARTELL)

A masterpiece sculpture, a fascinating and timeless dining table.” Ph.S

Philippe Starck extended the Aunts&Uncles family with his latest table, Sir Gio. This sculpture-like and timeless design reflects the designer’s obsession to create maximum of effect with a minimum of materiality embodied by the strictly transparent polycarbonate base of the table.

Plastic rightly raised to the rank of precious material, rare, technological.
New moulding techniques, unthinkable few years ago, metallic and sparkling finishing touches, for a more contemporary image, coherent with current tastes, new item families opening to a product range for which plastic is a new formal language and that widen the Kartell offer to other worlds than the habitation one.
