| CAPPELLINI / MILAN INTERNATIONAL FURNITURE FAIR 2007
Cappellini was founded in 1946 as a manufacturer of handmade furniture. Over the years it has become a launch pad for the greatest international designers. The company offers a wide range of collections divided into four different sections: collection, Systems, Project Object and World. Rounding off the product range is the Contract division that offers design as an added value.
Through its products, Cappellini puts the aesthetic styles of internationally famous designers at the service of architects and planners across the world.
Some of its products are exhibited in the world's top museums, such as the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Centre George Pompidou in Paris. Cappellini's business is mainly concentrated in the residential sector.
