A tribute to Giorgetti, a leading Italian brand in contemporary design, as it celebrates 120 years of distinctive style. A must-have book for lovers of quality, refinement, and the uniqueness of Italian design.
Giorgetti is renowned for its unparalleled blend of tradition, innovation, and originality. Giorgetti's functional, contemporary pieces--and their integration of the highest artisanship and woodworking tradition--are presented in this volume through a rich collection of stunning photographs.
The volume is organized as a "cabinet of memories" specially designed to commemorate the 120th anniversary of the founding of Giorgietti. Since 1898, the growth of Giorgetti from a wood workshop to a renowned international furniture brand has been a fascinating evolution driven by dedication, refinement, and reinvention. To capture this, the 120 precious compartments of the cabinet signify the 120 years of continuing pursuit of excellence. Also featured along with photographs of the iconic designs are sketches, drawings, and watercolors as well as some woodboard models selected from the company's archive. The book is completed with a final glossary of the most important and emblematic words in Giorgetti's work.
