CALLIGARIS was founded in Manzano, Italy by Antonio Calligaris. What began as a single chair design in 1923 has expanded to more than 800 catalogue products sold in 100 countries across the world. Calligaris furniture emphasizes the Italian design philosophy that products should not only be beautiful and artistically crafted, but also functional, ergonomic and designed to simplify everyday life. While creativity and technical know-how are crucial, the selection of raw materials is equally important. Calligaris works with leading companies to develop innovative materials that ensure comfort, aesthetics and unique colors.
