Since its inception in 1961, the company has developed close ties with international architects and designers to produce custom products and create classical and contemporary art objects. After primarily working business-to-business the company decided launch to its first range of consumer products.
"We felt that working solely as a business-to-business supplier wasn’t giving the right value to our product and expertise anymore," explains Ghidini. "So we thought, why don’t we extend our production to design pieces that we can sell directly to the public?"
