Work Philosophy

The evolution of the market requires on one hand to personalize the product, on the other to express the technology factor and the innovative element in the best simple way, that is a morphological and structural feasibility.
It’s necessary to utilize new technologies and a wide knowledge of materials, giving them value, making them sense,
changing them in functional objects.
Design is to find the right balance between shape, which helps the material to be impressed, and material,
which helps to create your ideas.

Our work is active mainly in these sectors: seating for office, collectivity, lecture-halls, conference-rooms
This is a field which requires high specialisation and develops projects follow them from the moment of
planning and designing to the stage of industrialized production.
We are engaged in a work of research for using evolved and advantageous technologies and materials;
in engineering; in aergonomy; in competitiveness; in design.
The projecting attaches importance not only to aesthetics, but also to industrial feasibility,
respecting rules and limiting costs.
A lot of aspects make the process highly innovative, rapid and complete in a qualitative way : the aid of CAD 3D Software
both in preliminary-retail projecting, and during the industrial process ; the whole collaboration with suppliers,
thanks to the electronic exchange of data and documents; the attention to the accuracy of details and to the choice
of technical-mechanical solutions; the superimposition, more and more present, of development phases.
The results of this engagement, of this enthusiasm, come true as a series of patents and as a line of
products growing in variety and evolution.
