| MATTEOGRASSI / MILAN INTERNATIONAL FURNITURE FAIR 2005
Matteograssi has over a century of experience in the crafting of leather and coach hide, with all the love and care of the true craftsman. The company was in fact founded in 1880 in Mariano Comense, a small town situated in a small area called Brianza, located in Lombardy, a region of northern Italy, with the originally manufactured saddles reins and bridles; the origins of the company are in fact a further demonstration of the authentic craft spirit on which it is based, a true culture of fine workmanship undertaken with painstaking care. Today Matteograssi has earned its reputation as one of the leading design companies in the field of modern furnishings. Its production is very versatile, with particular importance being given to finding ergonomic solutions that are both functional and innovative.
In 1994 Matteograssi acquired Pizzitutti, which became a division of the group specialized in high profile objects furnishing accessories. In 1995 it opened its new showrooms in Milan and obtained ISO 9001 certification. A year later the company acquired the utilization rights of the designs of the famous Milanese architect Guglielmo Ulrich, realized between 1930 and 1960.
Thanks to the high quality of its organizational infrastructure and its products the company has acquired excellent standing in the supply of furnishings for highly prestigious public areas, company head-offices, and the most important international airports. It furnished the waiting lounges in the airports of Malpensa, Fiumicino, Paris CDG, Frankfurt Athens, Beijing, Dubai, Bucarest, Kiev, Djakarta and the Alitalia Vip waiting areas.
