Curiosity, tenacity, and passion for research have characterized the work of the Favaretto&Partners Design Studio for more than 40 years. The studio, based on industrial design and interior architecture, was founded in 1973 in Padua by Paolo Favaretto. Back in the 1980s, the Studio was one of the first in Italy to engage in business relationships abroad, collaborating with prestigious companies in North America, Europe, and Asia.
Reliability and proven competence have helped the Studio to establish a long-lasting relationship and a variety of production methods, which the Studio has used to construct the entire industrialization process for the majority of its projects. Other renowned values at the Studio include the relevance in the application of materials, the design precision, and the research for innovation of form and function.
In 2009, with the entry of the young Francesco Favaretto, the activities of the Studio have extended even further and now cover various areas of design, from industrial design to communication, and from tangible to digital matter. The product design sector ranges from telephones to furniture (seating, lighting, upholstered furniture), from medical to home decor.
The Studio is particularly specialized in the design, prototyping, and industrialisation office furniture, technical seating (executive armchairs, operational chairs) as well as community seating. Favaretto&Partners supports and practices the principles of Design for All, a declaration accepted by the European Commission and promoted by the IIDD (Italian Institute Design Disability, today known as DFA Italy), which is in favour of good design practices that aim to ensure the accessibility of places and objects to the widest range of users.
