Explore the Design World with Cappellini
Immersed in the artisanal tradition of Brianza, the Cappellini brand has deep roots dating back to 1946 when Enrico Cappellini founded a workshop in Carugo dedicated to crafting "in style" furniture. In 1977, architect and designer Giulio Cappellini joined the company, bringing extraordinary innovation and opening the brand's doors to the international market.
The year 2004 marks a crucial step in Cappellini's history with its integration into the prestigious Poltrona Frau Group, a powerhouse in the high-end furniture sector globally.
Guided by Giulio Cappellini's bold vision, the brand has shaped the design landscape with iconic collaborations with renowned designers. Alessandro Mendini's Proust armchair, Marc Newson's Felt Chair, Marcel Wanders' Knotted Chair, and Tom Dixon's S-Chair are just a few of the masterpieces adorning the rich Cappellini catalog.
Giulio Cappellini's talent as a scout has made the brand a launching pad for emerging designers like Jasper Morrison, James Irvine, Carlo Colombo, and many others, solidifying his influence in the international design world.
The Cappellini catalog offers an extraordinary variety of proposals, from iconic chairs like Piero Lissoni's Supersoft to the Bouroullec brothers' Cloud bookcase. Werner Aisslinger's Juli collection and Patricia Urquiola's Lud’o Lounge chair testify to the brand's commitment to furnish not only domestic spaces but also contract and office environments.
Experimentation, technological research, and high-quality materials define the Cappellini brand, placing it among the excellences of Made in Italy. Today, as part of the Poltrona Frau Group, Cappellini continues to embody the essence of innovative design and high-end furniture, carrying forward its legacy of creativity and distinctive style.
