Favaretto & Partners is a design studio that focuses on industrial design and interior architecture, founded by Paolo Favaretto in 1973 in Padua. Curiosity, tenacity and passion for research have characterized their work for more than 40 years.
Back in the 1980s, the Favaretto & Partners Studio was one of the first in Italy to engage in business relationships abroad, collaborating with prestigious companies in North America, Europe and Asia.
Reliability and proven competence have helped the Studio to establish long-lasting relationships and a variety of production methods, which the Studio has used to construct the entire industrialization process for the majority of its projects. Other renowned values at the Studio include the relevance in the application of materials, the design precision and the research for innovation of form and function.
In 2009, with the entry of the young Francesco Favaretto, the activities of the Studio have extended even further and now cover various areas of design, from industrial design to visual communications, and from tangible to digital matter.
The product design sector ranges from telephones to furniture (seating, lighting, upholstered furniture), from medical to home decor. Their Studio is particularly specialized in the design, prototyping and industrialization office furniture, technical seating (executive armchairs, operational chairs) as well as community seating. Favaretto & Partners supports and practices the principles of Design for All, a declaration accepted by the European Commission and promoted by the IIDD (Italian Institute Design Disability, today known as DFA Italy), which is in favour of good design practices that aims to ensure the accessibility of places and objects to the widest range of users.
