Kartellmuseo first opened in 1999 to commemorate 100 years of the factory and 50 years of the brand-name. The museum, located just 20 kilometers south of Milano, has recently been renovated and is new and improved and open to the public.
The over 1,000 pieces are organized into the four categories of events, design, technology and communication, and all five decades of the plastics brand are represented. Furniture, lighting, car accessories and lab items are included, along with drawings, photographs, prints and catalogues. Visitors can also see design prototypes and multibrand items, and learn about the designers behind the products.
To get to the museum, you’ll need to get off at the Famagosta subway stop (Green line) and take a 20-minute bus towards Pavia to the Binasco stop. After your visit, be sure to stop by the gift shop to see their T-shirts and check out any of the latest Kartell products on sale!
