was founded in Milan to bring together the experience of an Italian designer, Elia Mangia, and an Spanish engineer, Maria Mendez, and give new impetus and form to design projects for furniture
based on a vision combining harmony, versatility and research.
STIP is harmony: we combine joy in creativity, expressive originality and essential forms to bestow balance and uniqueness on our projects. STIP possesses that uniquely Italian ability to create products of the highest quality, that is supplemented with the experience we have acquired throughout the world and our exploration of new perspectives on materials, techniques and expressive potential.
STIP is versatility: every project is conceived to be flexible and adaptable to different settings and types of composition. Our aim is that of sharing an idea of identity and creative participation with the people who turn to us, while only ever offering our customers products we truly love.
STIP is research: we explore tradition to offer new perspectives on the future. This also involves rethinking the very idea of living and the way we experience spaces and objects. For us attention to details, materials and processes are an obsession and we believe sustainability is synonymous with awareness, which is why our idea of beauty is never one prone to obsolescence.
For STIP beauty has no boundaries, but its roots lie in the tradition of italian design and manufacturing. That´s the reason why all our products are designed and produced in Italy.
