CEO Riccardo Turri describes his company: “Starpool represents a balance between opposites: hot and cold, tradition and innovation, imagination and rationality”. The company has been active for 39 years now at both national and international level in the design and creation of wellness centres and Spas. Starpool, now credited among the manufacturers of outstanding products made in Italy, began life in the green heart of the Trentino Dolomites at Ziano di Fiemme in the Val di Fiemme. Its one aim was to give life and form not just to wellness products but also to a genuine allround culture of wellness, consisting of technology, innovation and design both in the professional and the private spheres. With more than 1,400 Spas realized all over the world and 200 dwellings equipped with the home lines, Starpool offers a full range of products with solutions for every wellness concept: hotels, sports halls, day Spas, private Spas, yachts, beauty parlours and homes. There are two collections, Classic and Sweet, that contain the basic elements of every Spa such as saunas, steam baths, showers and Starpool’s core business is the professional wellness sector in the areas of hospitality, contract and marine, to which can be added the residential/home sector. Alongside the “hardware” Starpool proposes a wide range of complementary services to support customers before, during and after the realization of the Spa, aimed at ensuring the structuring, organisation and culture of wellness.
The design of Starpool’s products blends perfectly aesthetics and functionality. The company and the art director Cristiano Mino (Compasso d’Oro 1995) have won the Red Dot Design Award for SweetSpa and SweetSauna90 (2011) and, in 2012, for SweetSaunaPro. In 2014 he won the SweetSaunaSmart Grandesing Ethics International Award.
