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.
The brand Goods was founded in 1995, inspired by the human being’s ancient custom of gift-giving. Nowadays, our collection consists of prominent home accessories and small furniture by Dutch designers. These designers are both internationally acclaimed and young talents. We distribute the products as a Dutch Design label.
Goods initiates the development of new products, yet other times designers approach us with an idea or design. When the product and design fit into Goods’ collection, the design is made production ready in collaboration with the designer.
Products from Goods are widely available in international museums, such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Iceland Design Centre. Moreover, the collection is also sold internationally in design shops. Many of our products can be custom-made in small or large production runs, for example as small business presents.
For nearly 30 years The Markuse Corporation has dedicated itself to celebrating the role architecture and design play in our daily lives
The legend lives on. Success stories are stories about tradition and progress. A fact that is demonstrated by the recent success achieved by the young Sitting Bull brand that has been built on the more than 100 years of experience that Flötotto company is able to look back on. Clear evidence of an obvious commitment to remain open to new ideas.
