O/K, like Outdoor/Kartell, is the new project mixing the “classic” elements of furnishings for the outdoors interpreted with materials and colours to express the cheerful nature of the product, the place they were designed for, and last but not least, the mood of the brand. Today the series is composed of a lounger on wheels and a three seater sofa with cushions and Plastitex supporting sling mesh in bright colours on a painted aluminium frame with transparent coloured thermoplastic joints and feet. The outdoor as a lived-in place where plastic is synonymous with performance and for which a whole collection of immediately identifiable furniture has been created.

The chair exhibits clean and simple lines, and its die-cast aluminum frame makes it lightweight and resistant to the elements and every day wear.

Have a seat in the human catapult! Not really, though the sleek curve of the spooned seat crooking into the stem, to base, lends an imaginative use for the uniquely designed stool. Made of plastic polypropylene, the specially reinforced curve of the seat is meant to ensure comfort and flexibility. Designed by Antonio Citterio and Toan Nguyen, the gas lift pump adjusts the seat height nearly 8 inches, the handle discreetly hidden within the seat. Available in a variety of colors, this saucy stool is available by Kartell at a going rate of $620. designer: antonio citterio and toan nguyen, producer: kartell materials: plastic polypropolene period: 2000s
