Kristalia was established in 1994 by young entrepreneurs from Friuli who share two great passions: design and jazz. Kristalia has given special attention to innovative design projects through experimentation and searching for new technical solutions, using materials borrowed from the fields of fashion and sport. Production immediately met the needs of a public oriented towards contemporary furnishings while maintaining details and reassuring traditional styles. Kristalia began to pursue a different path and attract consumers who were particularly attentive to the aesthetic and qualitative characteristics linked to innovation in Italian and international design. In April 2008, Kristalia offers the first catalog of contract furniture, a careful selection of products for all the needs of architects and interior decorators.
Christophe Pillet, a French designer who started his training in Milan in 1991, is highly versatile with his creations and partnerships: from product design to interior design, architecture and set design, he always pursues interesting simplicity, elegance created with a few details. “The chair and table I have designed for Kristalia are ambitious projects, not only due to their design but also to the difficulty involved in industrially producing them. These objects are simple in shape but technically complicated.”
