Kristalia furnishings: the appeal of the past and a vision of the futureA piece of furniture ages, changes, and bears the imprint of those who have touched, used, and lived with it. Materials absorb the energy of passing time and are covered with a patina of memory and sensation. Kristalia welcomes the patina of experience that time confers on furnishings by studying objects that, precisely because of the passage of time, take on greater meaning and beauty. Leather or cement, materials that show the wear and tear of time, are used in some of the brand's collections. Kristalia has guided some of the most topical moments in furniture design - like the introduction of the extendable table - with an active and attentive view to the future.
Kristalia focuses on innovative projects, experimenting with new technical solutions and materials, often borrowed from fashion and sports. Some of the company's best-sellers are the Sushi table by Bartoli Design with all of its variations; the Face chair, designed by Luca Nichetto; the BCN stool, by Harry&Camila, winner of the Good Design Award 2008.
Born in distant Japan, designer Kensaku Oshiro received a prestigious Master in Industrial Design at the Politecnica Design School in Milan. In 2015, he chose Milan as his home base and immersed himself in studying and designing works of art for interior design. Kristalia met him and shared his thinking, forms, and materials. The result of their meeting was Holo, an exceptional table created with the special processing of sheet metal and characterized by a striking base with a large oval hole at its center. The top of this furnishing jewel can also come in glass. The Holo collection includes a console and a new living room table to enrich and harmonize any modern living space.
Kristalia design and love for the environmentKristalia appreciates rhythm in everything. Over time, this passion has opened the brand to challenges, relationships, and the development of innovative ideas. For Kristalia, rhythm can be found in many sources – in the notes of their beloved jazz; in nature that marks the changing of the seasons; in the daily sharing of new discoveries; in new ideas and alternative solutions resulting not only from thought but from shared action. With a unique ability to open and sustain dialogue with those who propose new ideas – whether visionary or traditional - Kristalia knows perfectly well which paths to abandon and which to follow. Even the company's headquarters - the pride of its region - reflects the pulsating Kristalia rhythm. The brand knows how to acknowledge a territory that has bequeathed its values and heritage. Kristalia treasures these intangible gifts, reciprocating with stimulating encounters and meetings open to the broader community.
Kristalia's firm commitment to the environment is reflected in the company's strict production protocols and regulation of ancillary services. The company uses high-quality, certified raw materials and, whenever possible, prefers the use of recycled materials such as glass and aluminum, which can be wholly recycled several times over, as well as polypropylene or steel. With its growing attention to ecology, Kristalia also employs renewable materials like wood to make its long-lasting products.
Chairs, tables, bookcases, and all other furnishings are conceived, designed, and manufactured with qualities and characteristics that make them almost "immortal." They can withstand any stimulus or pressure that might otherwise compromise their forms or materials. The company uses strictly "made-in-Italy" raw materials and semi-finished products manufactured by companies that adhere to environmental protection protocols. All Kristalia products are certified for material properties like mechanical strength, fire reaction, safety, and health.

The creators and founders of Kristalia are from the Friuli region in Italy. They are young, dynamic, and careful observers of everything around them, with an innate and irrepressible passion for jazz. After thorough analysis, they concluded that their region's products were undoubtedly innovative in design but deeply linked to mainstream needs. Consequently, they decided to embark upon a path that would bring originality to the form, concept, and above all, function of their design furniture....
