As a modern furniture manufacturer with a history of more than 90 years, Italy’s Calligaris is a truly unique business. From the philosophy that drives the company to the pieces it designs and makes, no one does it quite like they do. And it all started back in the early 1920s with the vision of an Italian furniture craftsman named Antonio Calligaris.
Company took the opportunity of the 1990s to expand into other lines including bedroom furniture, sofas, tables, and accessories. This was also a time when Calligaris began using materials other than wood. The company started producing furniture using things like aluminium, plastic, leather, and even glass.
The current physiognomy of Calligaris is born from the union between its artisanal tradition, synonymous with quality, care and Italian style and the industrialization that has made it a leader in the furniture industry.
For the past thirty years Alberta has been a synonym of quality in sofa design and production. The company is based in the Treviso area, in north-east Italy, drawing upon the local artisan tradition and flair for creativity and design.
During its long history the company has responded to changing tastes with its two main lines of upholstered furniture covered in fabric and leather. The geometric lines and enveloping shapes become a trademark for the company, always ready to innovate to better express modern living styles. Fabrics, finishes, colours are all carefully and expertly selected and matched to create unique, exclusive products that “design” the interiors with all their personality and a touch of irony. The company founder, now sole director of the two divisions, is Giuseppe Sbroggiò.

Chateau d’Ax has been developing in concentric circles for more than 60 years, stage after stage, with products and services, progressively qualifying the distribution and building the brand’s identity.

For Arketipo Firenze Design is life, stylistic transgression and wish to express one’s own values through non-banal forms and materials.
The history begins in the eighties and tells how the passion for the quality of Florentine textile manufacturing led to the creation of upholstered furniture, combining top quality with attention to detail and a vibrant and eternal image.
The Italian essence of aesthetic choices is continuity, a distinctive sign and a wish to reaffirm one’s own cultural roots. Materials dress the design style. The mastery lies in choosing what’s best, new and useful. Inspiration is often drawn from parallel worlds, to make a classic fabric innovative and vice versa, like in historical ateliers.

Emu is one of the first companies in the world to develop and patent a plasticisation process for metal components. Thus, from the very beginning, the company is a pioneer in the technical know-how for processing and protecting metal.
The company’s transition into the furniture industry takes place in the late ‘50s. The metal plasticisation process that they have developed so far is now applied to school equipment, office fittings, and Swedish-style furniture for the home. In addition, Emu’s successful test of PVC as a less costly substitution for propylene allows the company to begin manufacturing outdoor furniture as this technique eliminates the problems commonly associated with exposure to the elements.
