Cartoons is a screen with self-supporting structure in corrugated cardboard extracted from pure cellulose, completely recyclable and without polluting by-products in white, light brown and blue. The upper and lower edge is in matt black technopolymer. Terminal elements for stiffening in brushed die-cast aluminum. Catoons was founded in 1992 by the pen of Luigi Baroli, a project that won him two years after the Compasso D’Oro. Cartoons is made by Baleri Italia.
Born in Corbetta (MI) in 1951, after taking a degree in architecture at the Politecnico in Milan, he has worked, mainly in the field of interior design, although jewellery design is another major interest. He has developed the coordinated image for a chain of clothing stores. In 1994 he won the Compasso d’Oro award for the Cartoons screen, produced by Baleri Italia in 1992. He has been a collaborator of the company from 1990 to 2004, in charge of the art direction of the showroom in Milan, and the settings for the collection in occasion of events both in Italy and abroad. One of his latest projects for Baleri Italia, the innovative Marì chair and armchair, has soon become one of the company’s bestsellers.
Baleri Italia, founded by Enrico Baleri and Marilisa Decimo in the 1984, is the iconic brand of the 20th Century the years of sobriety and rigor of forms/functions, the ultimate expression of a certain pragmatic and unattainable design idea; in pursuit of the perfect, non-obsolete, non-flashy, consistent and international object. Evergreen objects and collections, signed by great masters and newcomers who then became the references in terms of style, giving life to a classical-contemporary universe that now has found its vitality, production, communication and commercial strength.
