Cattelan Italia is focused on producing custom-made home furnishings with a modern appeal, using state-of-the-art technology and combining values of luxury and lasting Italian craftsmanship. Founded in 1979, Cattelan Italia started out as a producer of marble furniture. Today, the firm still designs and crafts fine furnishings in such beautiful Italian marbles as black Marquina and white Carrara, but it has evolved into one of Italy's biggest furniture manufacturers.
The firm produces a comprehensive range of furniture and collaborates with award-winning global designers. The company's home furnishing collection includes beds, mirrors, desks, bookcases, leather chairs, lamps, and media units.
While never trendy, the furnishings have a modern look and often incorporate state-of-the-art technology. The Toto Barstool, for instance, has a seat that smoothly adjusts by lifting a lever. The dining collection includes the Monaco table with a glass top and a wood and stainless steel base.
In every one of its designs, Cattelan Italia's guiding philosophy is that furniture should enhance the feeling of serenity and harmony in a home.
Born in 1962, Alessio Bassan lives and works in Thiene, Italy. Self-taught designer, he was inspired to develop his own personal training path, collaborating with companies and studios involved in architecture and interiors.
In 1988, Mr. Bassan started a lasting association with an important design studio in Vicenza. After this experience, he opened his own studio in 1997, working as an all-rounder in industrial design, graphics and interior design. This multidisciplinary sensitivity inspired him to create a series of furniture elements, objects and environments characterized by a sophisticated and unconventional poetic art, often proving to be a precursor of times and trends.View other products by Alessio Bassan
