Since 1982, thanks to the initiative of some Tuscan entrepreneurs, Arketipo proposes and creates upholstery of refined design at the company located in Calenzano, Florence. For several years we have been members of the ADI (Associazione Disegno Industriale ĘC Industrial Design Association), but from our beginnings, we have been realizing our creations combining top quality with attention to detail and a vibrant and contemporary image.
The manufacturing process is one of the most important characteristics of the company. A perfect synthesis between technology and manufacturing ability: all main phases of production are completely managed by a highly specialized staff and every single phase is subjected to punctual quality control.
Every single metal or wooden structure is covered with polyurethane foam of differing density and cut, shaped and glued following the different needs of comfort and design.
Before going to the cutting process, all models are entered in a computer system guaranteeing perfect uniformity.
All cut covers are grouped by single product and sent to our sewing department, which, thanks to the great experience and manufacturing quality of the staff, makes it possible to create the most accurate and particular details and finishes.
The product will find its definitive look at the expert assembly department .
After assembly, every item is subject to an accurate quality control, packed and labelled before shipment to final destination
Every year, an addition to the catalogue of new items is added to the general catalogue, which expresses the essence of our style. "Slow Living" is the main concept of all our collections: luxury intended as the desire to surround ourselves with important, simple and essential items improving our quality of life through comfort, quality and functionality. We have given special attention to design and after a long collaboration with Adriano Piazzesi and Carlo Bimbi, we have started working with new international designers - the Spanish Studio Lievore Alterr Molina, the Maltese Gordon Guillaumier and the Japanese studio Nendo who signed the 2009 collection.
