True Design: Go Retro with La DoubleJ For Kartell

Colour, research and innovation: La DoubleJ – the project by J.J. Martin was created in 2015 to offer a new trend, consisting of prints, designs and vintage rarities – and meets the creativity of Kartell for a project dedicated to interior design. La DoubleJ prints dress the great Kartell icons in new ways, playing on the balance of shapes and colours.

“The idea for La DoubleJ is to always partner with the very best of Made in Italy whether we’re making silk dresses or porcelain plates. When it came to our first foray into furniture, Kartell was our top choice. Working with Kartell was an absolute pleasure and its iconic furniture are the perfect home for our vintage prints.” JJ Martin

The collection comprises a retro mix of beautiful pieces – bringing a quirky yet modern look to Kartell. From rugs and seating to side tables and more, the collection boasts an array of interesting pieces to suit the contemporary lifestyle.

Let’s take a closer look…


The La Double J collection for Kartell presents L’americana, a hard placemat available in four different variants: Olive, Galletti, Ninfea and Pic-Nic.


The Clap small armchair, designed by Patricia Urquiola, is now part of the La Double J collection for Kartell, with the fabrics Olive, Ninfea, Geometrico and Pic-Nic. The seat structure is available in three different colours (white, black and red), which transversely match the four patterns of the frame.

Tip Top:

The Tip Top side table, designed by Philippe Starck with Eugeni Quitllet, is now part of the La Double J collection for Kartell with customised tops. The Pic-nic pattern matches the black version and the Ninfea and Olive variants match the white one.


Kartell’s undisputed bestseller is now part of the collection created by La Double J, with customised doors and top in the three-drawer version. The Galletti and Ninfea prints are paired with the white version, the Geometrico pattern with the red model.


The cushions are presented in nine different variants: Galletti, Uccellini, Ruote, Lilium red, Pic-nic, Geometrico, Ninfea, Olive and Tulipani. Available in two different sizes – 48x48cm and 48x35cm – they can be used in a variety of combinations.
