Honed and perfected through time
Bartoli Design is a brainchild of Carlo Bartoli who started the project in 1960. Born in 1931, the Italian designer got his feet wet early from his training with Italian masters of architecture and design. His innate creativity further fuelled after he graduated in Milano; he then started with architecture and interiors in 1960. Later, due to recurrent crisis in the building industry, he focused his attention and talent on furniture design. Thanks to this part of history, the furniture industry gained one of today’s best designers, brimming with ingenuity and continued perseverance to consistently create beautiful and outstanding pieces.
Carlo Bartoli’s impressive dedication to design research sets him tremendously apart from other designers. All his creations are, needless to say, well thought of. His passion enables him to design stunning, simple, comfortable and technology-inspired furniture.
