Giorgetti S.p.A. is a company with over a hundred years of history, the result of a reality in this territory that is synonymous
with work and entrepreneurship. To tell the tale of Giorgetti means to tell the economic and evolutionary story of Meda,
a city in Brianza situated about thirty kilometres north of Milan.
The artisan activity in Meda started in the countryside thanks to the farmers who made extra money by creating work utensils
and furniture. Moreover, Meda was initially founded near an important monastery of Benedictine nuns founded in the VIII century
and, in 1195, Emperor Henry VI stayed there and later, Emperor Maximilian. The work of the Benedictine nuns and their important
guests created the conditions for demand of high quality furniture.
At the start of the XX century, Meda was an established furniture centre, and was able to compete with any manufacturer in
Europe, thanks to quality products, working techniques and more and more refined wood finishing. This significant improvement
in local manufacturing can be attributed to the arrival of the best masters from the art schools of Paris, Venice and Milan;
in addition, there was the municipal design and carving school, together with the parish school.
In this historical context, Luigi Giorgetti started his entrepreneurial adventure.
The real stylistic change came about in the 80s when Giorgetti decided to collaborate with architects, city planners, artists
and intellectuals who never thought they would ever design furniture. This decision apparently a risky one turned out to
be a winner.
Nowadays, Giorgetti broke furniture design constraints, adopting specialized mechanical production lines and advanced digital
quality control systems to fulfill both functional practicality and aesthetic quality requirements, and enthusiastically
collaborate with noteworthy professionalism such as Massimo Scolari, Chi Wing Lo, Léon Krier, Laura Silvestrini and Antonello
Mosca. That carries a unique and instantly recognizable style: the Giorgetti style.
