Giulio Cappellini, trained architect, joined his family business of about fifteen employees in 1979 to push his creativity and adventurous attitude. Cappellini’s iconic works include the iconic Gong tables and the 2020 edition of the Petit Quack system. Through these works, and his company as a whole, sustainability is at the forefront. Longevity in design, meaning products that detach from “throwaway” culture, is extremely important to the designer and the brand. Marcel Wanders, a designer scouted by Cappellini as a young professional, has obtained a Greenguard Gold Certification for his products, a standard that guarantees maximum control of emissions for products designed with attention to health and wellness.
Giulio Cappellini continues to use his curiosity to experiment and take risks. Through this, he has become known around the world for his ambition and dedication to contemporary design.
