Designer Tokujin Yoshioka has created a collection of "invisible" furniture for Kartell employing their pioneering polycarbonate technology - the collection features a thickness never before seen or manufactured.

Tokujin Yoshioka explains "In the last few years I have been thinking about a design that would include natural phenomena and invisible elements such as senses, wind and light. The 'Invisible', a special collection launched from Kartell, only leaves the sense as if seating in the air. The presence of the object is eradicated and it will create a scenery of a sitter floating in the air. It is as if the physical presence of the object has been uprooted and gives life to a 'floating' scenario. Even the installation itself gives visitors that extraordinary sensation of entering an unreal world."

The Invisible collection encompasses tables, occasional tables, sofas, armchairs and benches.

Kartell is also collaborating with the Yoshioka to create an installation in the Milan flagship store, for Milan Design Week next month, as a backdrop to showcase the new range of invisible pieces.
