In 1963 Alessandro and Giancarlo Bontempi, already knowledgeable in the artisan manufacturing of metal, opened a manufacturing facility specializing in the production of tables and chairs. While Giancarlo was overseeing the production line, Alessandro developed the 1st distribution network which just a few years later in 1967 led to the production of 15,000 chairs and 1,600 tables.
The company's designs, often made of glass, wood, and metal, are contemporary and innovative. Design contributions made by notable architects including Giuseppe Raimondi, Daniel Rohde, Emilio Nanni, and Andreas Weber, have helped the company expand internationally. Bontempi Casa was awarded the prestigious Compasso D'oro in 1987.
The Bontempi Group now accounts for 6 facilities, 3 manufacturing plants with 450 employees, and 9 product categories selling to clients within Italy and worldwide. "Bontempi" has become synonymous with contemporary home furnishings with a collection featuring continuous innovation that is positioned to satisfy the ever-growing demand of modern lifestyles.
