From the initial production of furniture accessories for third parties, in the early 1960s the Company shifted to a highly innovative field. With the contribution of designers and by introducing die-cast Zamak alloy technology, it became a leading producer of accessories for design furniture with its own catalogue of products branded Confalonieri. Design, quality and service are the three pillars that underpin Confalonieri's philosophy.
The Company's strongpoint is the constant presence of the Confalonieri family, which ensures solid foundations and entrepreneurial continuity. In the 1990s the management of the Company was entrusted to the third generation. Progress is implemented with IT systems, automation of production processes and also with the creation of the coordinated corporate image. These years also saw the beginning of the partnership with Paolo Nava and Fabio Casiraghi with the subsequent creation of a new market segment, namely the furniture feet programme. All the shares of Con&Con were purchased towards the end of the decade.
Today, the company works with many famous designers (including Paolo Nava and Fabio Casiraghi, Lissoni Associati, Alberto Meda, Marelli & Molteni, Franco Guanziroli, Luca Casini, Marconato & Zappa and Simone Micheli), and also cultivates relationships with young designers. Confalonieri products have been repeatedly chosen for the ADI Compasso d’Oro Award.
