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.
FUCHU FURNITURE, based in Hiroshima, situated in the western part of the Japanese mainland, has been inheriting history and high quality craftsmanship as a major source of furniture for many years. Based on inherited techniques and tradition, the new brand “MEETEE” has been launched to express modern ideas and interpretations through furniture.
Employing only the highest quality materials and manufacturing methods, MEETEE is focused on a new vision of contemporary furniture design tailored for modern lifestyles to the highest levels of craftsmanship.
