From 1946 to today Cappellini is passed through a deep transformation that has brought the Firm to compare with the most different circles of the world of furnishings and design. From the first approaches to the international creativeness, passing through the marketing of pieces of high quality, to the presentation of designers of different extraction and character, Cappellini gave life during the years to different collections, heterogeneous, but that cohabit with great harmony and facility under the same brand. Cappellini therefore, born as an handicraft Firm, has leaned out to the new millennium indissolubly tied to the world of the image, of the experimentation and of the search of models, often of the most refined simplicity, that leaves enough space to the consumer for an individual interpretation. The products of Cappellini are never boring neither absurd, but they always possess something of alive and light, often full of healthy humor, other times proposing brave and dynamics formal solutions: these are the characteristics that make the collection Cappellini full of vivacious fractures and contradictions. Bravely, Cappellini keeps on working with designers of the whole world, different temperaments that don't create a real "Cappellini’s style", but that compete to form a balanced and convincing collection.
The reality named Cappellini is composed nowadays from Collezione, Sistemi, Mondo, Progetto Oggetto and from the Contract division.
Collezione introduces on the international stage products different for origin and for the experience of the designers, but coherent on the plan of the aesthetical and expressive search to reach a more and more cosmopolitan public; they are strong items, but able to integrate themselves in the different environments without creating upsettings. They are the fruit of a balanced combination between project and advanced technologies, always in the respect of the traditional "sartorial" productive aspect.
To satisfy the imagination and the intervention of the consumer, also maintaining a production of ample quantities, from the 1981 Cappellini devotes itself to the study and the realization of the collection Sistemi, a proposal of extreme flexibility that allows to furnish in different ways completely different environments through a vast range of colours, finishes, veneers and typologies of complements and accessories.
Cappellini in the "80s had the ability, through the collection Mondo, to draw from the collective imaginary to fill the discrepancy between design and traditional pieces of furniture, creating a new collection that still today integrates the modern with the past.
Cappellini also dedicates its research to the objects and the complements creating in 1992 a collection of products for the house calm and measured, simple but of great design.
Progetto Oggetto is the design of the normalcy and the synthesis; the lamps, the vases and the containers that compose the collection are as they should always be, pleasant and honest.
Contract division finally completes the heterogeneous offer of Cappellini production, managing both projects "custom made" and setting great attention to the Clients that directly choose from the catalog. The division is a reality that offers the design as a great value, leaving at architects’ disposal the different aesthetical languages of the most interesting names in the world of the functional design, with items of transversal employment that can be easily integrated and adapted to any necessities.
