Curiosity, unrelenting passion for research and exemplary rigour in design have characterised Favaretto&Partners’ work in industrial design and architectural planning for over 30 years. Founded in 1973 as Studio Favaretto, it developed, from the early 80s, a long and fruitful experience working alongside Italian and foreign companies. The practice has consolidated lasting relationships by following the full development process of most projects with a number of prestigious businesses, reciving many awards. Favaretto&Partners’ unique style is founded on the innovative use of materials, painstaking precision in design and a penchant for stylistic and functional inventiveness. The technical competencies gleaned over decades and the ever-present passion for experimentation have enabled the practice to work successfully and with versatility in different manufacturing sectors, from telephones to furnishings to medical and household objects. Favaretto&Partners has specialised in the planning, prototyping and production of office furniture, technical seating (operational and executive) and collective systems, introducing, in certain cases, design languages embraced by other designers and manufacturers. Favaretto&Partners actively supports and adheres to the principles of “Design for All”, a declaration accepted by the European Commission and promoted by the I.I.D.D. (Italian Institute Design Disability). The declaration encourages disability-proof design practices which aim to make objects and environments accessible and functional to the widest possible range of users.
