Kartell launched its first single brand store in De Waterkant last night, showing once again why Cape Town was voted World Design Capital for 2014. Media and local designers were treated to an exclusive preview of the glamorous new Kartell showroom which blends unique Italian design and innovative display for an exceptional decor experience. Elegant hostesses armed with La Motte champagne and cold Peronis lined the red carpet and welcomed arrivals.
The courtyard at The Hudson formed the backdrop for the reception as Kartell opened its doors for the first time. Dish slaved behind the scenes, turning out delicious morsels that included salmon roses, organic vegetarian wraps, mushroom risotto balls and heart shaped ravioli to name a few. Liezel van der Westhuizen and the Expresso TV crew interviewed Cape Town designers and got their thoughts on their favourite pieces.
