Pedrali is an Italian company producing contemporary furniture for public spaces, offices and homes. The collection is the result of a careful and accurate research aimed to create industrial design products with original shapes made of plastic, metal, wood as well as upholstered. A wide range of chairs, tables, complements and lamps exclusively manufactured in Italy at company production sites through a design process which combines tradition and innovation, engineering excellence and creative brilliance. The production technologies experimentation, the use of different materials and the cooperation with many designers have allowed Pedrali to achieve important awards such as the Compasso d’Oro ADI for the Frida chair.
The “Archivolto” studio has been working with Pedrali for many years; the “Ice” chair, the “Gliss” chair and the “Smart” chair have had great success.
Claudio Dondoli and Marco Pocci are originally from Colle d’Elsa, near Siena, where the “Archirivolto” studio still has its head office today. Dondoli and Pocci met in Florence at the university faculty of architecture where they were part of the same team. In 1983 they opened an industrial planning and architecture studio, which from 1989 has been working exclusively on industrial design.
For the “Archirivolto” studio a project starts from the direct relationship with the customer, a good product has to have an affordable price.The search for the most innovative materials and processes allows for the best results to be achieved in terms of a quality-price ratio; this is one of the main activities of the studio.
