Established in 1963 in Palazzolo sull’Oglio, Pedrali is an Italian company that produces contemporary design furniture for contract and residential in the headquarters of Mornico al Serio (Bergamo), where the automated warehouse designed by architect Cino Zucchi is based, and in the wood division in Manzano (Udine).
The collection is the result of a rigorous and careful research that is realized in the creation of industrial design products made of metal, plastic material, wood as well as upholstery.
A quality-oriented manufacturing process, with scrupulous sourcing of certified raw materials, research and true passion for cutting-edge machinery, step by step planning in every phase, with the precision typical of a craftsman: it’s this blend of elements that has made Pedrali a world-class creator of contemporary industrial design. These are joined by a profitable collaboration with numerous designers that has allowed us to achieve, over the years, important awards such as the Compasso d’Oro ADI for the Frida chair. Following the cornerstones of a 100% made in Italy production philosophy, the company’s activity, since the end of the ’70s, is confronted with the international market through a distribution network that reaches over 100 countries.
Claudio Dondoli – Marco Pocci
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.
