Established in 1984 in the Tuscany region of Italy this wonderful family company has grown its design classics collection and distributes the collection across the world. The masters represented by this company encompass a list of the all-time most famous Architects and Industrial Designers – Eero Saarinen, Breuer, Mies van der Rohe, Frankl, Carbone and Massola to name but a few. According to their catalogue cover page “the fruit of their research has been done in cooperation with the masters’ heirs”. What a nice thought…
Heady company at best and anyone who has studied the “masters” knows that the reason they are considered masters is because of the longevity of their designs coupled with the comfort. Sit in the famous Barcelona chair and you will be astonished at how perfect the pitch of the seat is, how it is comfortable if you are small or large or somewhere in between. Master indeed.
The company manufactures these designs with extreme care – the leather used is tanned in old wooden barrels according to ancient Italian tradition using vegetable extracts free of harmful dyes – one of the reasons the products will grow more beautiful with time. Aging the right way, the Italian way! The foam in the chairs and sofas is CFC free, the cushion fillings are made from selected feathers and all the metal frames are produced using cold rolled tubular steel which is then emery polished, nickel plated, chrome plated, brushed and polished according to the original design specifications. Finally the lacquering is all done with epoxy varnishes.
As this wonderful company moves into its 32nd year in business we are indeed proud to carry their product in our showroom. Come see why they are called “Design Masters”.
