CALLIGARIS


1923 THE BIRTH OF THE COMPANY

Antonio Calligaris starts his small artisanal business by producing the “Marocca” chair, typical model of the Manzano area in Friuli.

1920-1960, THE FIRST PRODUCTIONS

The workshop of Antonio Calligaris organizes its production, bringing in wood from the surrounding mountains and straw from the Friulan lagoon.The apprentices of the workshop are entrusted with colouring the straw, dyed with natural pigments.The machines are few, the majority of the work is still done manually and it is mainly women who take care of weaving the seats and putting the finishing touches on the chairs.

1960-1980, CALLIGARIS IS AN INDUSTRY

The economic boom coincides with the modernization of the Calligaris family business: the firstautomatic straw weaver is installed. Calligaris has become an industry, the leader in a geographical area known worldwide as “the Chair District”, which begins to lay the groundwork for the conquest of other markets. In 1986, Alessandro Calligaris, the third generation of the family, takes over the Presidency of the company.

THE 90S, EXTENDING THE RANGE

Calligaris expands its range with complete furnishing solutions: chairs, tables, furniture, beds, sofas, furnishing and decorative accessories. Wood is no longer the only material by which Calligaris measures its vocation to innovation, the company now also begins to work in metal, plastic, leather and glass. In 1998, the company opens its first American subsidiary in High Point (North Carolina).
