Seating philosophy - by Sandro Tonon

“The picture shown in the previous page has been taken when I lectured some time ago at the Kiev Architectural University. I had the opportunity to go over the history of design, from Bauhaus to the influence of the Scandinavian design of the fifties, from Memphis to the daily aesthetics of the present millennium. Connecting this to the cultural influences these movements had also in my company, in terms of design and materials, this was an excellent background to start a discussion. The information I gave them about our quality, endurance and ergonomic tests were also a matter for discussion. Finally I emphasized the huge importance we give to each detail. It can be technical or decorative but always it has to be used with great care. As I often reiterate to our customers, the difference between a great product and a ordinary one, in our sector, is the detail It follows that the daily research activity, the cooperation with the designers, the comparison with the technical department, the team working, the stylistic consistency, the attention to the costs and consequently the aim of industrializing in the best way every single component, are all elements of our daily effort to achieve the maximum in quality. All this can only be achieved as a result of working within these elements”.
