Adaptive reuse: defining new purpose for existing buildings
Ever since buildings have been built, they have been repurposed. How can existing building assets remain relevant in a changing world?
Established in 1963 in Palazzolo sull’Oglio, Pedrali is an Italian company that produces contemporary design furniture for contract and residential 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).
Pedrali is an Italian company producing modern furniture for the contract and residential sectors. The collection results from meticulous research aimed at creating functional and versatile industrial design products in metal, plastic materials, wood and upholstery, which are often combined. Seating, tables, furnishings and lamps are all exclusively manufactured in Italy, combining tradition and innovation, engineering excellence coupled with creative brilliance.
The “100% Made in Italy” philosophy takes shape through internal production at the Mornico al Serio (Bergamo) headquarters, with its automated warehouse designed by architect Cino Zucchi, and at the Manzano (Udine) works.
High quality and respect for the environment represent Pedrali’s long-established practice, as can be seen by the brand’s use of water-based paints made principally from plant-derived resins for wood products, and by the certifications ISO 9001 for quality management, ISO 14001 for sustainable environmental management, FSC™ C114358 for the use of timber from certified forests, and Greenguard for low emissions of toxic substances.
Experimentation with production technologies, use of diversified materials and collaboration with numerous designers have resulted in Pedrali winning important awards, such as the Compasso d’Oro ADI for its Frida chair.
Pedrali is a member of ADI, Associazione per il Disegno Industriale (Association for Industrial Design).
