The desire to change and renew and knowing how to observe the world with a different look are the key elements that animate the spirit of De Padova, founded in 1956 by Fernando and Maddalena De Padova. An entrepreneurial reality capable of opening up to the new and modern with an innate taste for beauty and a unique design ability. De Padova collections are protagonists at angolo in showroom, its official dealer.
A sober simplicity
The brand has a creative path marked by the ability to combine the elements of popular tradition with classical synthesis and technological rigor, creating the conditions for the inimitable De Padova language. This language has been espoused by the great masters of architecture and design, such as Achille Castiglioni, Pierluigi Cerri, Charles and Ray Eames, Vico Magistretti, Michele De Lucchi, Ingo Maurer, George Nelson and Dieter Rams.
At the end of the 90s, with the architect Renzo Piano, De Padova furnishings arrive at the café of the Center Georges Pompidou in Paris, at the Morgan Library in New York and at the headquarters of the newspaper Il Sole 24Ore in Milan. At the beginning of the 2000s, the inspiration of the "big designers" joins talented and emerging designers who expand the proposals in the catalog, while Maddalena De Padova receives the Compasso d'Oro for her career, reopens the space of the former ICF factory, restructures it completely and transforms it into the new headquarters.
The drive for innovation finds its maximum expression in 2015, in the fusion with Boffi when De Padova decrees the beginning of a new era: the showroom becomes the place to imagine and design our own home or environment. work. With the art direction of Piero Lissoni, he revises the historical collection with a few delicate modernizations and creates unpublished pieces, signed by Lissoni himself, by Nendo, by Van Severen and by other brilliant minds.
The De Padova style
Armchairs, sofas, beds, furnishing accessories, bookcases and cabinets… De Padova furniture is elegant and versatile, simple and essential, welcoming and functional. The collections give life to bright and sophisticated environments, where the meeting between innovation and craftsmanship creates an essential and poetic living style, made of light colors and fresh atmospheres. The quality of the materials and the utmost attention to detail confirm the leadership of the brand in the field of Italian design.
De Padova has an articulated catalog of proposals characterized by exclusive creations, such as the collection of bookcases and cabinets by Vico Magistretti and the Chesterfield 16 leather sofa, a classic masterpiece of any luxury living room. Still in the living area, the brand's innovative style translates into a long series of collections signed by important designers such as Piero Lissoni and the Japanese Omi Tahara.
De Padova studies objects according to the space that hosts them with the aim of combining the aesthetic perfection of the lines with the practicality of the forms. It has created wall systems with a sober and essential style, which - thanks to their lightness and versatility - can also be used as partitions: a true reference model for all systems with different modules.
A tribute to the Sicilian river that flows into the Tyrrhenian Sea, the new project by Elisa Ossino is a bed with soft shapes, rounded corners, a headboard with delicate capitonné stitching and a soft padding that continuously wraps the entire structure.
Harmonious, linear and flexible. Alberese is the new modular project by Piero Lissoni for a contemporary, personal, welcoming living area. This collection of upholstered furniture with inclined armrests has a deep seat and every element can be composed into single modules, corner modules, or with chaise longue and pouf: “Alberese is a sofa born from many reflections and therefore frozen in its essence. It has big cushions, it is comfortable, but also elegant. It is called Alberese from the name of a very streamlined land, large and with very visible horizons just like the sofa: a sofa that can be seen, but at the same time very low with great comfort and very special angles, between design and architecture." - Piero Lissoni.
