My love for wood has always been at the centre of my life. This passion has been passed onto me from my father, himself, and I have tried to nurture it day after day with the same dedication one has in raising up a child. I started this job when I was in my early twenties and all these years I have been lucky enough to see with my own eyes the most beautiful and precious forests in the world, always looking at them with the awareness of the importance of their controlled and responsible management.
This is what I strongly wanted, since the first day – that Itlas would be a company which rotated around wood, loving it and its being life.
There are projects that immediately capture those who look at them for the first time as well as those who contributed to made them a reality. The “I Massivi” Collection is one of them.
Inspired by the love for wood and its being alive, it’s a project with which Itlas is looking ahead, broading its own horizons, extending its production wherever the raw material can be taken. A project thanks to which in the last three years we developed a strong and fruitful relationship with architect Marco Casamonti and Studio Archea, today a fundamental point of our company.A precious collaboration, enriched a year ago by the participation to the Collection of Doriana and Massimiliano Fuksas, archi-stars of worldwide fame who gave to Itlas’ furnitures a high end feeling.
And just now, few weeks from our third participation to “Salone del Mobile” of Milan, this already high level partnership have seen the acquisition of a new talented name in the international architecture panorama like Claudio Silvestrin. An honour for me and without any doubt an added value to the “I Massivi” Collection and everyone that during these days will have the opportunity to admire his distinctive contribution to our project. Today we are just at the beginning of a path filled with new emotions. ”
