Founded by Enrico Baleri in 1984, Baleri Italia is known for collections that exhibit strong formal and functional qualities, while maintaining a sense of irony and playfulness.

One of the maybe most successful products of Baleri Italia is the "seat egg" out of the humorous - by Denis Santachiara designed - Tato Series. But also with prestigious furnishing elements, such as the interior furnishing of private rooms of the Elysée Palace that emerged in cooperation with Philippe Starck, or the Caprichair by Hannes Wettstein for the Finnish parliament in Helsinki made the company famous all around the world.

The design and manufacturing process is always ruled by Baleri Italia’s philosophy that sets Man and his environment at the centre of the project and by the high technical qualities of the products that make them timeless objects, suitable for a multitude of environments. While collaborating with successful designers such as Alessandro Mendini, Angelo Mangiarotti and Denis Santachiara among the others, Baleri Italia has launched several new talents such as Philippe Starck, Hannes Wettstein and Luigi Baroli. At the same time many international prizes have been awarded: among them the Compasso d’Oro in1994 for Cartoons, since 2001 part of the permanent collection of MOMA NY, the nomination for Caprichair in 1994, Lisa chair in 2001 and the corporate image in 1987 and 2001.

When Nino Cerruti joined Baleri Italia in 2004 he brought with him years of experience working in textile and fashion design, influences easily seen in the companies innovative use of materials like solid wood, marble, printed silk, and hide-leather.
