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.
Born in Austria, a French citizen, Marc Sadler has lived and worked for many years in Europe, North America and Asia. He currently lives in Milan where he is a consultant for companies in the fields of home furnishings, large and small household appliances, lighting, technically advanced products and sports.
In all of these areas, experimentation with plastics has often formed a key part of his activity. In the late sixties, when design was known only as esthetique industrielle, he already shown a strong curiosity for the subject, choosing it for his thesis at ENSAD, Paris, where he graduated in 1968.
His work has won many international design awards over the years: his Motorcyclist’s Back Protector (designed for Dainese) is now housed in the permanent collection of design at the MOMA in New York and the lamp Mite (Foscarini) is part of the design collection of the Beaubourg in Paris.
