ArcheToys is of a collection of metal model cars, which are designed and produced by the industrial designer Floris Hovers. The idea developed from a design commission which Floris has put upon himself in order to find the answer to an important question keeping him occupied: Why do grown-ups still have the desire to play with toys?
Welcome to ALESSI-WATCHES. the Italian Factory of Design, presents the product catalogue, the collections, the designers. Enter the Alessi design world.
Zieta's main goal is to deliver uniqueness and customization in design and constructions while keeping the production, transport and warehousing innovatively efficient.
This is how they imagine the future world: Light, durable structures of customized applications produced on demand out of one-of-a-kind parts, yet efficiently.
They use computer controlled production process. Customized pattern, customized form, customized function, one-of-a-kind product and outstanding precision are what we deliver.
You will find all of this philosophy reflected in our products. We research, we discover new possibilities, we play with forms and we deliver a beautiful, innovative, surprising outcome to people who love design and who care about the design development.
They believe their work is a valuable contribution to the world of design not only by the unique beauty of our forms but most of all by opening ultra-innovative opportunities of forming and new paths for the world of future.
The moulds had been scrapped: all that remained were the drawings or, at the most, some reject pieces.
But since these were products like Joe Colombo’s Multichair or Rodolfo Bonetto’s 4/4, we couldn’t accept their loss. And so, B-LINE’s beginnings were dictated more by a gut feeling than a rational calculation: we wanted to restore splendour to objects that, because they were ingeniously simple and aesthetically interesting, were intrinsically precious.
This was all happening in 1999.
From then on, our ambitions regarding good designing came to fruition in the form of international collaborations and, besides the several items we consider heritage (see the item Boby), we manufacture furnishing products for the home, office and contract. The materials we use are plastic, steel, fabric and wood and we are extremely flexible where the technologies to be deployed are concerned.
In this quest of ours for the perfect combination between versatility, originality and functionality, we involved both the creative genius of Karim Rashid as well as the Zen essentiality of Kazuhide Takahama or perhaps the inspiration of a newcomer at his debut: what absolutely counts for us is the quality of the design. Having singled that out, B-LINE’s team and the designers work hand in hand through to the selection of materials, covering all technical aspects, to turn out products entirely made in Italy.
Tonone is founded in 2013 by Anton de Groof and is based in The Netherlands. The Tonone design team works together with local craftsman to produce their products. Each step in the process of designing and producing is done with care and an eye for each detail. Tonone stands for bold, functional and no-nonsense products with an industrial character. The design team’s vision is that traditional craft tools and mechanics can be a visual, as well as a functional basis for innovative product design.
