An Italian company, furniture designer and manufacturer with decades-long experience, has reinvented the laborious traditional production methods.
The technology is the result of a deep knowledge of traditional methods and of the desire and necessity to innovate them by providing a simpler, smarter, cheaper and more sustainable system to manufacture custom-made furniture. The innovation concerns the manufacturing process, and therefore the product as well.
The manufacturing process is radically simplified (in terms of skills required, time, effort and materials needed) and the application of the technology is universal, allowing a great level of freedom in the production planning. It is ideal for any kind of furniture: wardrobes, kitchens, bookshelves, stairs, partition walls, and it is suited to all environments, be it the home, the office, a shop, a public building, both indoors and outdoors.
The technology essentially consists in three patented elements: two profiles made of very light die-cast aluminium, and one joint. The profiles are cut to measure and by assembling them with the joint it is possible to build a light, stable, customizable frame, which will be the bearing structure of the piece of furniture. The system is thus autonomous and self-supporting, allowing not to use wooden parts such as sides and, in case of a wall furniture, rear, base and topside. Furthermore, the key characteristics of profiles make them compatible with almost all available hardware on the market, such as drawer slides, hinges and so on. These can be freely set in any position, as well as different types of doors, sliding or hinged. Since the profiles can be cut at any given measure, the custom furniture that is created in this way is not limited by standardized sizes, and can therefore be extended in all directions in a ‘continuous’ module-free way, allowing to reach even great depth, and this is impossible when using the traditional method of manufacturing.
The company offers the whole technology and all the relevant know-how, and is searching for partners for licencing or technical cooperation.
