Hand made in Italy
The demand for 'Made In Italy' products from an increasing number of foreign countries reinforces day by day the importance and the conviction to continue to produce each piece in Italy. The high level of craftsmanship by skilled artisan hands is enclosed in each product and allows to overcome the concept of standard product.
Italy has a centuries-old tradition in furniture manufacturing and Brianza District, where Cornelio Cappellini was born and still has its headquarters, is absolutely the most important area in the production of high-level furniture. The product ’Made in Italy' concept is a fundamental value for Cornelio Cappellini and it is respected at every production stage, from the design to the final realization of each piece.
None of Cornelio Cappellini items is made with the mass production logic. Each piece is actually a unique piece, and it always has something distinctive compared to the previous one, even if it is the same kind of product. The most modern technologies are also present in the various production departments, but always and only at the service of the 'handmade' concept.
