Mobil is a system of containers that simultaneously boasts agility, mobility, practicality, resistance and durability. Thanks to its design and the glamour of the colors available, it fits into any room in the home or office, lending itself to various types of use. Surfaces and drawers are available in three finishes: with a successful semi-transparent effect, opaque and glossy in the PMMA transparent version. The drawer, alternating with the upper surfaces and the top, is the system’s base element. Mobil can be a simple chest of two to six drawers with convenient handles. The possible configurations can rest on wheels or legs, making Mobil suitable for use in different contexts: from the bedroom to the living room and bathroom, as a stereo stand, or in the study or office as desk drawers for office supplies and documents.

Kartell Mobil Container & Shelf Designed by:
- Antonio Citterio
- Glen Oliver Low
Born in 1950 in Meda, Italy, Antonio Citterio opened his architecture office at the age of just 22. One of the most internationally sought-after designers, Citterio has worked for such renowned companies as Vitra, Flos, Kartell, and Iittala. The reason for the success of his design projects is that he likes to “tease” out an object’s dormant potential. He is on a constant search for true and authentic work and that he detests bad design. In 1987 and in 1994, Antonio Citterio received the Compasso d’Oro award.
Since 2006 he has been teaching architectural design at the Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio, Switzerland. In 2008, the Royal Society honored him for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce of London, which gave him the title of “Royal Designer for Industry.”
