yesterday and today

HANDICRAFT & DESIGN, yesterday and today



Eredi Marelli is the natural continuation to the original workshop founded in Cantù in 1934. We are speaking about a handicraft firm, whose task has been from its beginning the production of a new design furniture: designed by popular architects in Milan who could take properly care of the quality in their execution and materials choice. From wooden and metal inlays to brass fusion, from valuable and esteemed hardwoods up to the care and the finish of any single detail.
CONTEMPORARY - HISTORICAL - INTERIORS are the main fields where Eredi Marelli witnesses, today as ever, handicraft meeting with design: the architect knowledge and his ideas meets the producer skills, his technique and the use of materials in a handicraft workshop.
Handicraft & Design, yesterday and today is their “red thread” linking one to the other: the offer of single pieces of contemporary taste, the research and the valorization of the unique and original piece of the past and the execution of entire cut to size furnishings according to customer’s taste.
Because handicraft is about detail, material, specialization, territory, tradition, customize…
Because design is charming beauty, elegance that makes the difference, bursting identity…
Because handicraft & design is Italy, what else?

The Short stories tell of people and important things done.
They are an Italian journey to discover the meeeting between the ideas of an architect and the skills of a craftmen.



 ".....the architect’s knowledge and ideas meet the technique and the use of materials in a handicraft workshop."

As a culmination of a successful collaboration which lasted for thirty years, the Paolo Buffa Archives (Milano 1903-1970) are guarded at the Eredi Marelli.
