2020 marks the 13th anniversary of the association of the partners of Bartoli Design, Anna, Paolo and Carlo Bartoli, italian architects and designers at the service of quality and elegance. The office, located in Monza, Italy, covers all areas of design.
Bartoli Design is a firm of architects and designers headquartered in Monza, Italy, which bases its working method on that initiated in 1960 by Carlo Bartoli. This consists in the development of an experience of the concept and the culture of the project, from its conception to its realization, passing through all the intermediate stages. Including all areas of modern aesthetics, architecture, planning and interior design, research and study of the product are based on the essential character of the latter, on the excellence of its quality as well as its artistic elegance and balance.
Working closely with furniture leaders such as Arflex, Fiam, Bonaldo, Kartell, Colombo Design, Confalonieri, Matteograssi, International Office Concept, Lualdi Porte, Nodus, Segis, Ycami and many others, the vocation of the Bartoli studio is deeply rooted in the history of creation, particularly in Italy, remains innovative. Devoted entirely to business and industrial progress, it remains attached to artisanal processes. For example, for the edition of the 1085 chair in natural leather, designed for Kristalia, Bartoli used traditional techniques and high tailoring expertise from the Conceria Presot tannery. The originality of the product lies in the durability of its wooden structure and in the alteration of the color and texture of the skin by spontaneous aging, but also in the maintenance of the leather, thanks to a hook that allows adjustment its relaxation over time.
A graduate in Architecture from the Polytechnic of Milan, Carlo Bartoli began a career as an architect before turning to interior and industrial design, designing objects for mass production. Having immediately stood out for the quality of his work and his creativity, he very quickly received public recognition and numerous awards. Gradually, he develops an organization of work and an approach of investigation and exploration of the object of the project before its realization. His association with Anna and Paolo Bartoli, in 2007, enriched him with different personalities, new looks and young ideas.
Among the distinctions with which Bartoli is honored, we mention the XXI Compasso d’Oro, in 2008, for the R606Uno chair, the IF Award for Good Industrial Design for the Tube sofa by Rossi di Albizzate, the ID Design Distinction Award, the Apex Product Design Award, the Red Dot and the IF Award for the Breeze armchair by Segis, stackable and ultralight. These last two creations are also selected to appear on the series of stamps of the Italian post office, “Italian design for a new domestic landscape”, and “Masters of Italian design”. The studio has already organized several exhibitions around the world: Milan, London, Cologne, New York, Prague, Hong Kong, Athens and Buenos Aires. Prolific designer named Apostle of Design 2012, focusing primarily on the necessities and honesty of the project, Carlo and his studio will remain ahead of their time for a long time to come.
