| ROBOTS / MILAN INTERNATIONAL FURNITURE FAIR 2008
Robots was established in 1962. The production of the first furnishing components comes out in the 70's.
Since 1995 the company has been headed by Renato Rebolini, who has augmented the use of steel rod with that of new materials. The production possibilities have been amplified and the collection has been enriched with objects that harmonize with a modern concept of dwelling that sees the house encompassing new functions, fragmenting and recomposing spaces, and introducing new rituals. Between realism and intelligence, investigation into behaviours and feelings for beauty, the Robots story continues, more open than ever to new encounters.
This year, at the Milan International Furniture Fair, Robots presents some new furnishing items:
Giulietta e Romeo, design Chiara Rapaccini
