Rubinetterie Stella : 130 years of history, excellence and reliability!
STELLA products represent the accumulation of 130 years’ experience, a combination of extensive know-how and an acute attention-to-detail vis-à-vis every single component.
Rubinetterie Stella can be justifiably regarded as one of the leading European manufacturers of tap ware, being the undisputed ‘barometer’ of excellence and a veritable icon of so-called "made in Italy" luxury in terms of bathroom taps, accessories, towel warmers and, most recently, taps for the kitchen.
Founded in 1882 in Cireggio on Lake Orta as a turnery and foundry, the company – under the guidance of its owner Pietro Stella - soon started to specialise in the production of taps and bathroom accessories. Even by the early 1900s Rubinetterie Stella was already at the top of the global market, thanks to its innovative designs and supreme levels of craftsmanship.
Quality of raw materials, cutting-edge technical research, high-functionality and a focus both on detail and aesthetics: these are still the fundamental traits of each and every Stella tap. Mechanical procedures are performed in small runs with controls taking place every step of the way; Stella is the only manufacturer to use bronze instead of brass for all the concealed components, specifically chosen for its proven durability and superior lifespan.
The finishes are all perfected using a special technique, re-introduced by Stella, which guarantees a beauty and brilliance that in no way diminishes with the passing of time. All company resources focus on and gravitate around what has always been the single most important company "mission": the product, with a clear emphasis on quality and detail in combination with those two elements providing its ‘essence’: style and innovation.
Several of Stella’s product lines or ‘Serie’ bear the signature of some of the world’s most outstanding names in the field ..
