Agapecasa extends the vision of Agape to the whole of domestic life, with original products that are refined, functional and modern. The "Mangiarotti Collection" is a collection of furniture made from prototypes, designed by Angelo Mangiarotti from the early 50s onwards: design classics, carefully tested and updated in full agreement with Studio Mangiarotti. The collection includes objects for everyday living, all very diverse, although designed by the same author, extremely relevant to today’s needs, and consistent, despite having been designed over a fifty-year period. Conceived by a designer who has been able to experiment with and establish new reference parameters in typology, form and construction, the collection proposes objects that deal in an unconventional way with the objects that inhabit our lives (chairs, tables, shelves and storage units), making them functional in an intelligent, innovative way, and giving them appropriate, yet sophisticated and unusual form.

Alpes Inox

Founded in 1954 by Nico Moretto, who has headed the company ever since and designed all its products, Alpes Inox began its operation with the manufacture of metal cabinets for the kitchen. In 1964 it started producing built-in kitchen appliances made of stainless steel: sinks, hobs, ovens and exhaust hoods. The company soon gained a distinguished reputation for the high technical and quality standards of its products, their sophisticated design and the accurate machining of steel, a high quality material characterized by its stainless, hygienic and resistant properties, whose 19/10 chrome-nickel alloy and special finish determine its exclusive “silver” colouring. The basic qualities that characterize the Alpes products are quality, functionality, safety.

Antrax IT

Radiators, towel warmers, and fireplaces: warmth enters the home in a number of different ways and under innovative forms, as an expression of research and the design concept. Antrax IT is versatility, elegance, wisdom and technology: its characteristic products, from the technical ones to the most iconic ones, decorate with style all the living and bathroom spaces, both private and contract. Leader in the design radiator sector, Antrax IT is the best expression of the undisputable vitality and uniqueness of Italian style and quality. Antrax IT, internationally renowned, won different awards in the design sector: in 2015, in particular, it won the Good Design Award with the product Flaps and the Interior Innovation Award with Tavola & Tavoletta.


COEDITION was born of a common passion: Charles and Samuel Coriat and Silvera are all unreservedly devoted to designer creations and home interiors, sharing both friendship and deep mutual professional respect. COEDITION is pursuing its role as a distributor of modern and creative French furniture by expanding its collections to include exceptional new products designed by Patricia Urquiola, Patrick Jouin, Michael Anastassiades, Aki and Arnaud Cooren, Marco Zanuso Jr and Alain Moatti. The high-quality collections are the result of exhaustive research, meticulous and diligent development and technical innovations refined by the designers and the distributor. This ensures that each object is different and unique and born out of a passion for design. In 2014, COEDITION completed two major projects: the new Tour Eiffel chair, designed by architect Alain Moatti for the Gustave Eiffel Pavilion, available from its collections, and Nouvelle Génération chair, for the reading rooms of the French National Library, created by Dominique Perrault Architecture & Associés (DPA). Both products confirm COEDITION's exacting standards and professional experience.

The American furniture company Emeco was founded in 1944 to make lightweight, non-corrosive, fire resistant and torpedo proof chairs for the US Navy. The classic 1006 Navy Chair was born. Made to last at least a hundred and fifty years, it was light, smart, functional and strong - because that was the best we could do. Today our craftsmen in Hanover, Pennsylvania continue to handcraft chairs that are so strong they are passed down through generations – that’s how we define ‘sustainability.’ Emeco is leading the industry, exploring and innovating ways to use consumer and industrial waste, and environmentally responsible resources to create and build simple, timeless furniture.

The Benedini Collection

Over quite a number of years of creative work on building houses or converting and furnishing them, we have designed and built lots of products with the help of talented craftsmen, despite the fact there is certainly no lack of projects in this particular realm of the Italian market. We have not decided to redevelop some of these projects in the belief that the reasons behind their creation may, in actual fact, correspond to wider needs.
