VittorioBonacina was started in 1889 by Giovanni Bonacina in an area north of Milan. The company used imported rattan to combine the local traditional crafts which the area was known for - basketry and furniture. The company embraced the revolution which occurred in the 1950s in the area of art and design.
A combination of production experience, collaborating with visionary designers and pushing the materials into new expressive forms meant a new era in the company’s furniture design. Notable examples of award winning chairs include Magherita and Gala by Franco Albini.
Rattan is a natural and sustainable material. VittorioBonacina’s artisans exhibit true mastery when working rattan. Each piece is made by hand to create both classic and fresh, new forms.
