Lapalma’s success has been achieved step by step throughout the years. No overnight success stories here - just hard work and passion in equal measure.
The company’s story begins in the 1980s, when founders the Marcato brothers decided to go into business on their own. Their initial idea developed rapidly and Lapalma was established soon after, showing from the outset a preference for natural, recyclable materials. Following investments in machinery, Lapalma took advantage of the availability of new materials to develop a wide range of products for the contract market, which quickly demonstrated the brand’s appeal, attracting buyers on major projects worldwide for hotels, shops, museums and airports.

In 1996, Carine Jannin who was then just twenty four years old, decided to create her own publishing house specialized in the design of objects. Her singular and strategic choices, free from all archetypes, allot a central position to the independence of creation. Together with Rachel and Benoît Convers, the established designers of the label, they combine a family trio, precursors in author design. Based on audacious concepts such as the “ made in France ” and objects with dual interpretations, this publishing house blossoms independently and cultivates its differences on the fringe of insidious standardization. The Ibride creations can be recognized at a glance: their references to the animal kingdom, their destructured archetypal shapes, and the graphic stamp of their museum like style, make up their territory of distinction.
