The first hit of the brand was the Korium chair designed by Tito Agnoli. He was distinguished by filigree handmade, craftsmanship. The factory adheres to these principles for more than one year. Her know-how is furniture with a perforated pattern, made from a special kind of leather (no more than 2.2 - 2.4 mm thick).
Another, no less ancient, material - glass - served as inspiration for the creator of the brand. FIAM ITALIAVittorio Livi (Vittorio Livi). Before opening his production, he studied the history of glass processing for many years. Now FIAM ITALIA owns a unique firing technology, which has no analogues.

Mercedes-Benz Interior Design Team Leader Nicolas Ehrenberg: "A very impressive stand, like the exhibition itself "INTERIOR SHOW". Here you can see the truly designer stuff. I believe design should go hand in hand with function. Aesthetics alone is not enough. We follow these principles in the automotive industry. I think for furniture makers they are also relevant. At the salon booth "Scale: One to One" there were just such things - harmonious, function plus artistic component. "
Director of Development Cherry wood Konstantin Andrikopoulos: "I love stylish, fashionable things, as modern and global as possible. So I liked the salon stand "Scale: One to One" - here were presented exactly such things. I was particularly interested in a luxurious floor lamp, from which cascading crystals seemed to fall. It seems to me that this subject is already on the verge between the subject design and the fashion sphere. "
