Today, leading designers are putting their names to pieces that are already design classics, such as the Vieques bathtub by Patricia Urquiola and the Bjhon washbasins, conceived in 1970 by Angelo Mangiarotti and currently made in marble, stone and the innovative and eco-sustainable material, Cristalplant® biobased.

Bosa has today an assortment of products with both traditional and modern design, often playful and colorful objects.

GTV – Gebrüder Thonet Vienna
The Thonet chair is maybe one of the most known and used chairs in the world. The original company, started back in mid 1800, had a huge success and developed over the years numerous production plants all over the world. After the second world war the original company suffered for many years and slowly rebuilt its production and business in Austria.
Some years ago, the right to produce and use of the brand was bought by an Italian company that started to reproduce the iconic original chairs. But more important, it started to develop a new collection where traditional bended wood is mixed with contemporary design and materials. As it is said: ”The heritage design the future”.
Today, Gebrüder Thonet Vienna stand for innovation and offer a vast collection of furniture pieces for residential and contract. The collaboration with know designers like e.g. Nendo, Front Design and Gamfratesi have resulted in a number of pieces that already have become icons themselves, used and demanded for many projects around the world.

Paola Lenti started from a thread: the one used for the rugs, the first products introduced on the market branded Paola Lenti. It was 1994 and started as passionate artisans with a scrupulous attention to the quality of materials: always looking for a point of contact, a special harmony between colors, signs and shapes.
