In 1947 Carlo Barassi, engineer of Pirelli, together with Renato Teani, in the financial dpt. of Pirelli, Pio Reggiani and Aldo Bai, founded the company Ar-flex (flexible furniture), that became later arflex.
They worked together with a young architect Marzo Zanuso and began to experiment the use of foam rubber and elastic tapes for the furniture market.
In history and life of a company there are events and moments of special meaning, which are awards for merit acknowledged by everybody. Those first memorable moments in the history of arflexcoincide with the company's creation, in modest premises in Milan's Corso di Porta Vittoria. It was there that the first manufacturing and sales team was formed, but the arflex company was only presented to the public for the first time in 1951, at the IX Triennale in Milan,after two years of experimentations. This early contact with a wider audience in the context of an avant-garde artistic event is intensely significant in the company's history, because right this experimental interest, if not separated from commercial purposes, shows the will of creating high technological and esthetical level products, based on deep research and experimentation. The golden medal at the IX Triennale assigned to Lady armchair was above all recognition of Arflex manufacturing philosophy.
The foundations of Artifort were laid by Jules Wagemans when he set up business as an upholsterer in Maastricht in 1890. His son, Henricus Wagemans, expanded the company into a furniture factory, which had a showroom in Amsterdam by the end of the nineteen twenties and was already well known nationally.
The economic recession of the nineteen-thirties forced H. Wagemans & Van Tuinen, as the furniture company was then known, to create a distinctive profile. Developing a catchy brand name and logo was a start. And naturally the furniture had to be distinctive too. The emphasis came to lie on functionality, comfort and quality combined with aesthetically pleasing design and an innovative use of materials.
In 1928 the new brand name was introduced: Artifort, derived from the Latin word ‘ars’ meaning art or knowledge, and ‘fortis’ meaning strong or powerful. The word ‘comfort’ is also reflected in this brand name.
Founded at the end of the 50's, during the period of maximum development of Italian design research, BBB operates in the design industry with its own special identity. Rather than simply following the ultimate trends, the company took on the role of driving force between experimentation and tradition. In its role of intermediary, BBB was able to represent the ever-changing spirit of the times in a modern yet always balanced style, thus creating an updated and elegant Italian living culture. The list of collaborators that have accompanied BBB in this evolution is alone a witness of what they accomplished over the years: from Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, Giandomenico Belotti, Giorgio Decursu, De Pas D'Urbino Lomazzi, Paolo Ferrari, Carlo Santi, the masters, and the present designers as René Barba, Alessandro Bosco, Dror Benshetrit, Massimo Colombo, Edy and Paolo Ciani, Lorenzo Damiani, Carlo Forcolini, Giovanni Giacobone & Massimo Roj, Franco Poli, Ilaria Prato, Marcello Ziliani. A heritage which reveals its contemporary appeal in this new catalogue that collects and compares projects of the past and of today, almost a dialogue about the meaning of contemporary living and the value of design, style and project.
Desde sus comienzos en los años 70, BD siempre ha sido una empresa atípica. El que sus fundadores y todavía propietarios proviniesen de la arquitectura y no del mundo empresarial marcó desde sus inicios un culto a la belleza de los objetos en algunos casos por encima de su función. Ello unido a procesos de producción más artesanales que industriales, facilitó el desarrollo de productos más cercanos al arte que al diseño industrial. Se caracterizan por su altísima calidad, por producirse en series muy cortas (en ocasiones son series limitadas), y por una manufactura artesanal que hace que cada producto sea único. En los años ochenta BD sorprendió editando el mobiliario que Gaudí creó para sus famosos edificios y en los comienzos de los noventa volvió a sorprender presentando en exclusiva la primera colección de muebles y lámparas diseñados por Dalí. Recientemente las colecciones de diseñadores con un acentuado perfil artístico como Jaime Hayon o Doshi Levien han continuado marcando este camino donde el diseño y el arte se encuentran.
The identity of Bitossi Ceramiche starts from the beginning of 1900’s and develops upon a productive ceramic tradition that existed in Montelupo Fiorentino starting from 1500. The Bitossi family business produces artistic ceramics, at least since 1871. It will be Guido Bitossi, heir to the ceramic tradition, to establish in 1921 the “Manifattura Maioliche Artistiche” featuring typical local craft works. The traditional production was renewed thanks to the Art Direction of Aldo Londi, a man attentive to the evolution of taste and with a natural born creative and aesthetical sense. The meeting with the architect Ettore Sottsass was of primary importance and it turned into a close collaboration with Londi for many years. Together they will give birth to successful lines which combined and magnified skill and genius. Bitossi Ceramiche still is in the original factory and it is still the destination for leading design characters who are fascinated by the historical value of the company and by craft production and create unique collections which are then recognizable in the nicest international shops. This attitude bound to the entrepreneurial skills developed throughout the years and to the constant research for quality product, helped to create its own identity for Bitossi Ceramiche, qualifying it as an example of Italian excellence. The family thus started to collect over 7000 historical works, documents and material related to the artistic ceramic production since 1871, and so it was created a massive Archive. Thanks to this collection in 2003 it was opened the main core of MAIB – Bitossi Artistic Industrial Museum, managed by the Vittoriano Bitossi Foundation, a direct offshoot of the family. In 2011 MAIB became member of MUSEIMPRESA, Italian Association of Enterprise Archives and Museums.

Tener una mirada diferente, el deseo de cambiar y renovar, anima el espíritu precursor de la empresa fundada en 1956 por Fernando y Maddalena De Padova, caracterizada por una fuerte actitud de apertura a lo moderno, un gusto instintivo por la belleza y una atención al proyecto suficiente de por sí. Para indicar el camino, y hacerlo extraordinario, los grandes maestros reunidos juntos en un único catálogo: Achille Castiglioni, Pierluigi Cerri, Michele De Lucchi, Charles y Ray Eames, Vico Magistretti, Ingo Maurer, George Nelson, Dieter Rams… Motivo inspirador de acuerdos al unísono, de un gran sinfonía a la que después se han añadido, a partir de principios del siglo XXI las notas de diseñadores de talento emergentes que han enriquecido las propuestas de catálogo. Un recorrido realizado estableciendo conexiones en el tiempo y en el espacio, con referencias culturales específicas, que van de la tradición popular a la síntesis clásica, del rigor tecnológico a la versatilidad nómada de los ambientes contemporáneos. Un imprinting que ha decretado en el tiempo aquel lenguaje especial y único DePadova hecho de intuiciones de estilo refinadas. La fusión con Boffi, que se producjo en 2015, parece acentuar esta inclinación, empezando por la concepción innovadora del actual showroom que, de hecho, ha marcado un nuevo inicio. La colección histórica, con el art direction de Piero Lissoni, se recoge bajo una luz diferente con pocas y delicadas intervenciones de modernización y se abre a piezas inéditas, firmados por el mismo Lissoni, por Nendo, Maarten van Severen y otros brillantes descubrimientos. El loft encantador de via Santa Cecilia, nueva dirección de DePadova, se convierte en un lugar donde imaginar y diseñar su casa o el entorno de trabajo.

Miniforms is a bizarre kind of. She always wears colourful outfits with strange shapes that stand out her soft and clean face. You can regularly see her talking with a lot of young talented designers. Sometimes you can see her in a coffee shop dressed as a bourgeois and chatting with the Irony and with the Avant Garde. Sometimes with the Environmentalist sharing love for the environment and wood. In the ’70, when they listened David Bowie music in disco, she was named differently. She was known as Industria Veneta Tavolinetti, Inveta for friends. In the ’80, when the new wave music was cool, she was looking at Europe. She started to travel, but she was still discrete. But now you can easily find her in Melbourne skyscrapers, in Madrid restaurant, in London design studio, talking fluently with a lively and fresh tone. As time goes by she looks always younger.
