High-class design furniture – elegant, extravagant, simply Italian. The designer furniture by label Cappellini turns your living spaces into something really special – guaranteed! Enrico Cappellini founded the family company in a small city north of Como in Italy as early as 1946. Back then Cappellini was only a small workshop that specialised on hand-made everyday furniture. Trough the years Cappellini developed into the the design company we know today.
Their story of success started when Cappellini began producing of contemporary furniture in 1960. Every year during the Milan Furniture Fair (Salone del Mobile) Cappellini showed new innovative creations in a warehouse. The little “exhibition” was soon to become a popular meeting point for design lovers and the label's fame grew constantly. However, with Enrico Cappellini's son Giulio's entering the company Cappellini began its true ascension to the top. The Italian manufacturer's trademarks: High quality, versatile combination of styles, vitality, breaks with convention, and contrasts.
Since the 1990s Cappellini has been working more and more with young designers from all over the world for their designs for furniture and lighting. Shiro Kuramata, Edward Barber, Jay Osgerby, Tom Dixon, Marcel Wanders, Konstantin Grcic, and many others have already created furniture for the Italian label. It is not for nothing that Cappellini is also called a stepping stone for young, talented designers, for many newcomers made their first professional experiences here. These constantly changing designers promote the heterogenous style of the design furniture by Cappellini further and time and again create innovative, astonishing pieces! Since 2004 Cappellini has been part of the Poltrona Frau Group for economic reasons, but the label has always stayed true to its individual style.
