Who we are

The Company was founded back in 1974, based on a revolutionary foldable and functional serving trolley, created by the Company founder, Giancarlo Pezzani, a creative designer and entrepreneur of the sector. A product so innovative and successful, the Speedy trolley deserved the establishment of a new company, which was then named after the trolley itself: Speedy. The Speedy trolley, a synthesis of functional character and innovation – even though the original trolley is no longer in production – it does represent the base of the company’s philosophy: “to create state-of-the-art articles, of innovative design, with the taste and ability that only a highly talented artisan can achieve”. The success of this item was immediate and the Company expanded in the field of gift articles by also adding to its production line tea-trolleys, trays and coffee tables made of high quality steel and glass. New sales were directed to foreign markets too that historically are keen on products of Italian design.

As of 1992 Giancarlo Pezzani’s sons Massimo, Cristiano and Giovanni take the place of the founder in the Company management and decide to expand and develop the trade in the furniture field. Thus is born a collection consisting of small pieces of furniture with an innovative design obtained by the harmonic synthesis of unique materials such as steel, aluminium, glass and solid wood. These items were conceived combining our experience and craftsmanship expertise with the most advanced technologies. In the last 5 years the offer has been increased constantly, by introducing exclusive and inimitable objects that can satisfy customers, the most exigent too, with their original shapes and fashionable colors.

In the last period, the Company has developed in such an important way, that a new brand was needed. For this reason, to better reflect who we have become, the Management in 2011 changed its brand into PEZZANI Home collection. The new brand, which directly makes use of Pezzani family name, will better identify the Company as an Italian producer of elegant and sophisticated furniture. A daring marketing decision truly reflecting the transformation that the Company has undergone during its history.

Pezzani Lab

A way to think and to do where different experiences meet themselves: conceptualism and formal study of designers and the artisanal experience in which the company was born. The union of these two different ways of thinking and doing, together with the contamination of the most recent market trends, create Pezzani Home collection items. They are characterized by the essential design, the using of traditional but renewed materials, the continuous research of quality and functionality which distinguish each of our item.

Archirivolto

Archirivolto was founded in 1983 as industrial planning, design and architecture studio.
While studying Architecture in Florence, Claudio e Marco and some friends put up an experimental theatre group . When they decide to focus their joint efforts on design, consolidating their ties of friendship , their interest in theatre strongly influenced the set–up of their new studio: drenched in creativity, sense of reality, respect and attention for the public. Keen on gaining an insight into the world of production and market, they started off managing an interior decoration shop. In 1995 the young designer Cristian Gori, from Siena Art Institute, joins the group.
For Archirivolto design means beauty, harmony and freedom and cannot therefore be bound by strict, pre–established rules, nor can it be a privilege for a social or culture elite. The designer is committed to create beauty for everyone and to make design approachable for an ever increasing number of people.
