Serralunga was founded in Biella in 1825. Serralunga is the name of the family that has been the creative and entrepreneurial heart of the company for six generations, manufacturing modern outdoor furniture. The company was started as a tannery and then moved into leather processing for industrial purposes. The real revolution arrived with the processing of plastic and then with the rotational moulding technique imported from the U.S.A., which gave origin to countless Italian design objects, such as outdoor lighting and contemporary furniture, all made in Italy.
The company has been based in the same place for almost two centuries. Its production is totally concentrated in Biella, Italy, in the street named after the Serralunga family, in a 12,000 m² plant, employing 65 members of staff and around the same amount in satellite activities. The plant processes over 1,200 tons of plastic and produces around 200,000 items a year.
“Every soul has a place of calm. I imagine spaces in which my objects give a sense of peace and beauty in a natural environment. This is the dream that guides my daily work: a fluid boundary between indoors and outdoors wherethe outside becomes intimate and the inside bright and sunny, mixing things up to create the unexpected. Emotionally.”
