Alessandro Calligaris

Since 1923

Function & beauty for over 95 years.

WHO WE ARE

We started out with just one chair in 1923.

Today, with more than 800 catalogue products sold throughout 100 countries, we can safely say that we made the right choice by deciding that Calligaris should be a company that reflects the times.

The affinity for fresh ideas permits the most interesting and fruitful concepts to become our furniture and accessories that decorate people’s surroundings; creating unique spaces that reflect the personalities of their occupants.

We balance technique, aesthetics, reason, and emotion — a mixture of contemporary design and flexibility. This is how Calligaris became an international brand of quality and creativity. Our wide, well-structured range of functional furniture is unmistakably stylish and suits individual tastes by blending shapes, colors, and materials for an infinite number of options.

CALLIGARIS COMPANY MILESTONES

The Beginning (1923)

Calligaris was born in 1923 in Manzano as a small craft workshop founded by Antonio Calligaris for the production of the Marocca chair, that was characterized by a wooden frame and straw seat, typical artifact of the area.

THE BOOM YEARS ( 1950s – 1960s )

In the 1950s, the son Romeo inherits his father’s business and develops it also thanks to the economic boom. In the 1960s the post-war reconstruction brought to a consumption boom with an exponential growth of the domestic demand.

THE LEGACY CONTINUES

The 2000s are pivotal years for Calligaris to establish itself as an international company. In 2008, Calligaris opened the first Flagship Store in Milan, followed by Paris and London. In October 2018, Alpha Private Equity Fund 7 finalized a majority stake of the Calligaris group.
