A different, new vision and an increasing urge to innovate are the values of the company founded in 1956 by Fernando and Maddalena De Padova. The Padova is characterized by a strong focus on the present, an instinctive sense of beauty and great attention to the details of the projects.
The great visionaries in design all come together in one catalog: Achille Castiglioni, Pierluigi Cerri, Michele De Lucchi, Charles and Ray Eames, Vico Magistretti, Ingo Maurer, George Nelson, Dieter Rams. They were all responsible for choosing a new direction, off the beaten track. They form the inspiring melodies of a large symphony, which were enriched by the notes of emerging designers after the turn of the century.
The merger with Boffi in 2015 has emphasized this attitude, starting with the opening of the current Milan showroom, which is a new beginning. Under the artistic direction of Piero Lissoni, the iconic collection was renewed and enriched with innovative items, designed by Lissoni himself, together with designers such as Nendo, Maarten van Severen and many more brilliant minds. The Padova location, where “austere simplicity” is of paramount importance, has now been duplicated repeatedly thanks to the widespread Boffi flagship stores.
