Top quality contract furniture
The company’s story begins in the 1980s, when the founding Marcato brothers decided to go into business on their own. Their initial idea developed rapidly, and Lapalma was established soon after, showing from the outset a preference for natural, recyclable materials.
For thirty years, the company has shown talent, tenacity, know-how and above all inexhaustible enthusiasm, expertly combining metal with wood, leather and fabrics to create timeless pieces of furniture with clean fluid lines. Following investments in machinery, Lapalma took advantage of the availability of new materials to develop a wide range of products for the contract market, which quickly demonstrated the brand’s appeal, attracting buyers on major projects worldwide for hotels, shops, museums and airports.
Lapalma’s blend of good design and aesthetic appeal produces furniture with a strong personality and has seen contributions from designers of international renown (as of 2013, Lapalma’s art director is Francesco Rota).
The brand’s success has also been recognized with a number of awards, including the Good Design award, the FX International Interior Design Award and the Design Plus award Today, Lapalma looks towards the future with the same unchanged enthusiasm. The genuine Italian nature of its products is stronger than ever, with its emphasis on craftsmanship and designs that appeal to the senses - the cornerstones of Italian design and production.
