Quality THE WORD "QUALITY" REFERS TO ALL THE PROPERTIES AND CHARACTERISTICS that give products the capacity to satisfy implicit and explicit requirements. Ever since the time when bartering was common practice, an implicit qualitative (and quantitative) evaluation of goods has been necessary in order to achieve a fair exchange. Today, the quality of a product is as important as the design, even though the intrinsic features that will make it long-lasting are not always easy to identify at first glance: raw materials, innovation combined with tradition and rigorous inspection of the finished item are some of the elements required to create pieces of great value. These are supported by organization, service, credibility and reliability to achieve quality that involves an entire project. This approach produces notable benefits in relation to the longevity of the item, considering not only material aspects, but also a value that survives over time, because an object can last longer than our lives and can even elicit emotions when it is handed down from one generation to the next. Surrounding ourselves with quality also means adding beauty to our lives: well-designed, well-made objects are beautiful both inside and outside. They are the result of fine work done with care and passion.
GIORGETTI Salone Del Mobile
Giorgetti At Salone Del Mobile MILANO 2017 Giorgetti has been the protagonist at the Salone del Mobile 2017 with a complete interior design project. Using its collections of furniture and accessories, Giorgetti designs spaces and it does so with increasingly varied options. Conscious of its manufacturing heritage, Giorgetti interprets contemporary style consistently to create a comprehensive collection where new pieces blend naturally with earlier designs. The quality of our raw materials and our pursuit of style result in timeless pieces that easily fit into any environment. After the success of the kitchen, launched in 2016, Giorgetti's creative journey drove the company to explore other areas of design, creating the first outdoor collection by Chi Wing Lo and Ludovica+Roberto Palomba. Salone del Mobile has also seen the launch of the second "Progetti 30" design, conceived to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the collection: Progetti Sense. The new designs of Carlo Colombo, Roberto Lazzeroni, Umberto Asnago, Massimo Scolari, Chi Wing Lo, Ludovica+Roberto Palomba, Pamela Amine and Rossella Pugliatti dialog with the objects of the Atmosphere collection, that is enriched by new items, such as tapestries, rugs, vases, bowls, tea sets, lamps and ornaments, all meticulously made according to the artisanal Made in Italy ethos.

PROGETTI PURE The Video
Progetti Pure: The Video PROGETTI PURE is the new limited edition from the Progetti collection, on sale only for 2017 and designed to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the iconic series. Having been restyled by the skill and creativity of Umberto Asnago, this armchair is characterized by solid wood, which is often the hidden soul of Giorgetti pieces and which here becomes the main feature, supported by another primitive material: leather, a pure component complementing the frame. The curved lines and simple elegance of Progetti Pure reflect a world of passion and refinement. â€œProgetti Pure represents an idea from over 30 years ago, which has been made current by simply undressing it,â€? explains Umberto Asnago, who, in this video, tells us how this new interpretation of the armchair came about.
