Bourgie, a lamp of unmistakable style and a true sales success of Kartell, admirably combines classic style, richness and tradition with innovation and irony. The base, in Baroque style, consists of three decorated legs that cross, while the wide screen with pleated effect creates, once lit, a game of a thousand reflections. Thanks to the particular hooking system of the screen you can obtain three different heights, which can be modified according to the preferences and the use that will be given: 68, 73 and 78 centimeters. Bourgie is transformed in fact into a splendid decorative lamp, table and desk: it can therefore be placed on a small table in the living room; as an atmosphere light on the bedroom nightstand; as a sculptural object on the ground or as a reading companion, thanks to its flexibility of use and its strong communicative value. After the great success of the transparent color versions, black, gold, silver and white / gold, Kartell now proposes three surprising new multicolored "dresses", perfect for those who wish to dare of originality and anticonformism.

Kartell is famous throughout the world for having invented the culture of furniture and furniture for plastic interiors. Kartell was founded in 1949 by Giulio Castelli, a chemical engineer moved by an inspiration: to create objects from plastic, a material of applications little explored until that moment. He then began a fruitful collaboration with the great designer Gino Colombini, winner of the company's first Compasso d'Oro prize in 1955. From the beginning Kartell's goal was to "brighten up the domestic landscape", becoming one of the main promoters of the plastic in the world of decoration and interior design, although in its beginnings they are more related to the manufacture of automobile accessories in 1949. It expanded into home furnishings in 1963.
