Sly 2014

We have an important mission.
The Centro Studi Poltronova was created in 2005 for two reasons: to archive important documents associated with the original Poltronova Company, and also to make some of its more iconic furniture and lighting pieces available in the marketplace. On these pages you won’t find the elaborate ranges of most other design companies; what you will find is a roster of masterpieces – axiomatic products from the role call of design. The designers of each of these objects channels a personal vision of the world and how to live in. Like a well-cut diamond, every piece flashes with unselfconscious freedom; it releases a depth charge that goes straight to your emotions. Together they constitute a micro-history of italian design. But any historical significance is way outstripped by their sheer power. Each and every piece is as seductive today as the moment it first appeared. Thanks to all the famous names herein and the masterful ones to come, we proudly do justice to these objects by telling their stories one by one, and by manufacturing them with equal amounts of passion, quality, and care.
