Crassevig news from Salone del Mobile 2017
For more than 40 years, curved wood has been Crassevig’s creative language, lending a distinctive style to the company’s collection of tables and chairs for residential and contract environments.
Founded in 1969 as a subcontractor to the furniture industry, Crassevig capitalised on its traditional workmanship and creative business vision, becoming a designer of timeless products and a creator of new styles. With an innate sense of beauty and an innovative spirit, the Friuli-based company seeks inspiration in the austere aesthetics of Northern European design.
Designers work in close partnership with the company’s in-house studio to provoke new ideas and interpretations, like Ludovica and Roberto Palomba’s Anna chair. The different curvatures of the wood are flawless, giving the chair an unparalleled lightness and grace that would be almost impossible to duplicate. A company must have exceptional technical and production capabilities as well as a deep understanding of the market to compete in the contract sector, the one in which Crassevig has played a leading role internationally since the 1980s.
In the 2000s, the company adopted a new approach inspired by its own past, celebrating its products in residential settings and new environments. The company’s tables and chairs are found in the world’s most prestigious hotels, universities, theatres, and institutional and corporate headquarters.
All Crassevig products are manufactured in Italy, mainly at the San Vito al Torre (Udine) facility. The company exports to the United States, Northern Europe, Japan, Australia and Singapore, to name just a few of its most important markets.
