The Optic container with open side is a product designed and built by Kartell. The company was founded in 1949 in Milan and immediately stuck out on the global scene when creating original, innovative furnishings with a strong design and a dashing appeal. The brand has paid close attention to innovation in the processing of plastic materials, as well as creating innovative, high quality products able to meet the needs of its customers. It abides by the idea that ever-evolving articles with new properties are the name of the game, such as satin finishes, flexibility, see-through features, weather resistance, flashy colours and soft surfaces. Every single piece of furniture made by Kartell goes into detail when it comes to plastic, encompassing the feelings and creativity of international designers that have collaborated with the Milanese company for many years. Among the many products you’ll find, Optic container with open side will surely capture your attention. This product is a collaboration between Kartell and designer Patrick Jouin. The container has the shape of a cube, which can be purchased in different colour variants. The structure is made entirely of see-through or batch-dyed PMMA. You’ll find one of the very features that make the company stick out: its play on colours, creating an image reflection and henceforth a spectacular product. The Optic container with open side is the closed model variant equipped with door. There are embossed pyramids sitting on the surface with a square base, creating a rather surprising optical effect. The small size allows the container to be installed anywhere you’d like. Get your hands on multiple Optic pieces and stack them or keep them in a line. Depending on the quantity and arrangement, this piece does its best to add a hint of charm to your home layouts._x000D_
