OUR STORY

CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY MEETS FINE ITALIAN DESIGN

Disrupt the furniture industry

Our vision is that technology allows us to enable augmented life experiences by changing the way we interact with the objects and spaces that surround us in the environments in which we live. Discreet, calm, empathic, predictive, adaptive, privacy-friendly, and sustainable technology improves our well-being, monitors our health, feeds our imagination, and fosters collaboration. Our mission is to create iconic smart furniture and the tech platform behind them, driving innovation into the design industry. We think we are at the dawn of a new renaissance in which we want to be ambassadors of a forward-thinking Made in Italy, able to combine technology with design, beauty with inclusiveness, culture with craftsmanship, and circular economy with industrial production.
