Curiosity, tenacity, passion for research, experimentation, technical expertise, multidisciplinarity

FOUNDATION
Studio Favaretto since 1973.
Favaretto & Partners Design Studio since 2009.

CAREER
In 1973 Paolo Favaretto, a newly graduated architect, started his business as Studio Favaretto. The same year he designed his first Agorà chair, a successful product that is still in production today.
It was in 1980 that collaboration with the first foreign customer began.
Six years later, in 1986, Paolo Favaretto received the international Product Design Award from the Institute of Business Designers USA for Powerbeam Desk, the first example of a desk with a load-bearing extruded powered beam
In the early 2000s, the studio saw an increase in national and international collaborations.
But the change came in 2009, when Paolo’s son Francesco Favaretto, after working in Canada, returned to Italy and decided to team up with his father, setting up Favaretto&Partners
From then on, Favaretto Senior and Junior racked up a series of important milestones such as the opening of a partnership in Toronto and Shanghai, where the first on-site manager was appointed.
2015 was a year of great satisfaction. The firm is honored with 13 international awards, bringing the historical total to an impressive 79 awards. The following year he designed the JUBE lamp collection for Vistosi, now the company’s best seller.
Favaretto&Partners celebrates its first 45 years in 2018.
Yesterday as today, the firm upholds the principles of ‘Design for All’, a declaration accepted by the European Commission, according to which the accessibility of places and objects to the widest possible number of users must be guaranteed.
To date, 542 design projects with predominance of chairs, armchairs and seats, but also lamps, desks and more, all conceived and carried out with insatiable curiosity, tenacity and passion for research.
