“I think we have created something special. We have spent years and countless hours creating the company that is Arketipo…We have Perfection Compulsive Disorder, a culture that is reflected in our nature, our passion, our identity…We are obsessed about details... It’s something you feel, you see, you breathe, you live.” Lorenzo Cattelan, CEO
Since its establishment 30 years ago, the company has been committed to a philosophy, creative vision, and craftsmanship that is deeply rooted in the rich culture and history of Firenze (also known as Florence). This capital city has gifted the world with many grand masters and masterpieces, leading the company to very proudly imbed Firenze in the Arketipo logo design.
Arketipo partners with internationally acclaimed architects, designers, artists, and design studios - many of whom are winners of prestigious international awards. Collaborators include Adriano Piazzesi, Bartoli Design, Bernhardt & Vella, Carlo Bimbi, Cristophe Pillet, Gino Carolo, Giuseppe Vigano, Gordon Guillaumier, Leonardo Dainelli, Ludovica + Roberto Palomba, Manzoni E Tapinassi, Massimo Lorusso, Maura Lipparni, and Nendo Studio.
The Arketipo company is recognized worldwide for its highly stylized line of contemporary furniture for contract, residential, and hospitality markets. Nearly 100% of Arketipo’s production of leather and fabric upholstery, wood and metal framework structures and parts take place in-house. This allows Arketipo to fully utilize their state-of-the-art manufacturing technology and strong handcraft tradition to create products that are unmistakable in their essential design, quality of work, durability and finishes.
Arketipo has always stayed true to their promise that “there is nothing we cannot build with the utmost quality and integrity” and continues to manufacture modern furniture of the highest quality with an intention for the “Arketipo purchase to be an instant legacy.”
