Patricia Urquiola Jellies Family for Kartell – A comprehensive line of plates, trays, glasses, bowls and carafes made from colorful and transparent PMMA plastic. The line’s individuality is down to the fact that each model presents a different organic pattern that has clearly been inspired by nature, harking back to the molds that were once used for making jellies. This design highlights temporality, and therefore also variety, from smallest to largest.
