Established in 1963 in Palazzolo sull'Oglio, Pedrali is an Italian company that produces contemporary furniture for contract and residential. The collection is the result of a careful and accurate research aimed to create functional and versatile industrial design products made of metal, plastic materials, wood as well as upholstery. Seatings, tables, complements and lighting exclusively manufactured in Italy through a design process which combines tradition and innovation, engineering excellence and creative brilliance.
The “100% Made in Italy” philosophy becomes real through the internal production in in the headquarters of Mornico al Serio (Bergamo), where the automated warehouse designed by architect Cino Zucchi is based, and in the wood division in Manzano (Udine).
These are joined by a profitable collaboration with numerous designers that has allowed us to achieve, over the years, important awards such as the Compasso d'Oro ADI for the Frida chair.
Following the cornerstones of a 100% made in Italy production philosophy, the company's activity, since the end of the '70s, is confronted with the international market through a distribution network that reaches over 100 countries.
Pedrali is a member of ADI, Associazione per il Disegno Industriale (Association for the Industrial Design).
Pedrali products feature in many innovative projects such as the Autogrill Villoresi Est which embodies the best practice on construction sustainability along the A8-Laghi highway in the north of Italy. Google Campus in Dublin and Microsoft House in Milan, characterized by its different public areas planned to encourage interaction among colleagues. The Alain Ducasse restaurants: the three-star Michelin The Dorchester in London and ore inside the ancient royal residence of Versailles.
Salewa Headquarter in Bolzano, with the biggest rock climbing wall in Italy. Pedrali products can also be found at the Van Cleef & Arpels boutique, situated in the legendary Fifth Avenue in New York or in the prestigious Place Vendôme in Paris. Kanazawa Umimirai Library in Japan, whose innovative spaces make this facility a new hub for the social life of the local community and the Remai Modern Museum, the new museum in Canada, which offers a unique perspective on contemporary art.
To produce durable products, both from the aesthetic point of view and from the resistance one, is the first element that ensures sustainability. During the production process particular attention is paid to the materials used, raw material consumption, to the optimization of the resources, waste management and emissions control. In order to simplify the recycling process all products are designed to be disassembled and brought again to monomaterial elements.
The high quality and respect for the environment therefore represent established practices, as demonstrated by the ISO 9001 certifications for the quality of business processes, ISO 14001 for a production based on a sustainable environmental policy, FSC ™ C114358 for the use of wood from certified forests and Greenguard for low emissions of toxic substances. The products of the collection meet the European standards UNI-EN 16139: 2013 of resistance, durability and safety for seating
In 2017 Pedrali takes a further step towards environmental sustainability through the use of plant-derived water-based paints, that allows to keep high quality standards in addition to a substantial decrease in VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds). These chemical compounds, contained in normal paints, evaporate at room temperature and can cause serious harm to human health, as well as contribute to air pollution. The result is a healthier and less hazardous working environment, since these paints are non-flammable; less air pollution, and vast energy savings, leading to the reduction of CO2 emissions.
