Cappellini | Official dealer - Salvioni Design Solutions

Salvioni is Cappellini official dealer

Giulio Cappellini, from the beginning the heart and mind of the namesake company, has gained over the years the well-deserved reputation of being one of the greatest talent scouts in the history of Italian design. His flair has brought to Italy a large number of young designers from all over the world, who have found in Cappellini the ideal environment to create bold and avant-garde projects, thus often starting careers from real design-star. The Cappellini philosophy of supporting the creativity of their designers, has given life to a rich and heterogeneous catalog, in which a multi-faceted “author” styls coexists. Over the years, this peculiarity has given Cappellini top marks and places in the most important museums of the world such as the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and the Center Pompidou in Paris.

The adventure of Giulio Cappellini at the helm of the brand began in the ’70s, when he assumed the lead of the artisan furniture factory founded by his father. His strategy was to combine visionary contributions signed by innovative designers with a collection of useful and practical furniture, such as tables, chairs and bookcases, often designed by himself. The first big name involved in the project was the Japanese Shiro Kuramata, whose drawers Pyramid, Side 1 and Side 2 appear today in all the design museums.

The relationship with young designers from the Anglo-Saxon area was particularly fruitful, including Jasper Morrison with his Thinking Man’s Chair, Tom Dixon with the iconic S-Chair and the Australian Marc Newson, author of the Orgone side table of the Wooden Chair. The collaboration with many French designers has also reached excellent results, such as the modular Cloud library by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec and the colorful Rainbow Chair by Patrick Norguet.

Make a review the Cappellini catalog is the same as leafing through an atlas of world design: there are places for creativity from all over the world, from the Swedish Thomas Eriksson to the Japanese Nendo, from the German Werner Aisslinger to the Israeli studio Raw Edges. Among the Italians, Alessandro Mendini deserves a mention, with whom Cappellini re-edited the famous Proust armchair, and Fabio Novembre with his Org table.
