The products

The range of products is quite vast: from simple chairs to products with a refined design, from leather armchairs to office chairs. The district’s production capacity is the result of shared expertise used to combine tradition with the most modern technology.

Selected from forests subject to strict control standards, wood is the traditional material of the sector. A well known and loved material, natural and alive, ecofriendly before the term even existed: processed with skilled techniques, enhanced by its surface finishing, it is always modern thanks to new esthetic and technological standards.

Family tradition and a strong bond with the territory are the keys to qualitative growth.
