CRISTINA Rubinetterie: tradition and innovationCRISTINA Rubinetterie was founded in 1949 in Gozzano on the shores of Lake Orta. The decisive impetus of its founder, Ezio Cristina, was followed by the hard work of his sons Alberto and Riccardo, who continued in their father's footsteps seeking to combine the tradition of quality craftsmanship with industrial innovation. Born after the acquisition of Silfra in the 1980s, Cristina Group increasingly specialised in taps, fittings and thermo-hydraulics. In 2007, the company opened its logistics hub in Gozzano in a structure of more than 2.000 square metres, including a completely automated warehouse where the company's products are developed and improved. The continuous pursuit of innovation is accompanied by the desire to serve an increasingly vast territory. In 2017, CRISTINA Rubinetterie opened its first showroom in Via Pontaccio in the heart of the Milan design district.
The CRISTINA Rubinetterie philosophy has always been marked by the research and development of solutions to truly satisfy user needs. In 1968, the Gozzano-based company was one of the first in Europe to introduce thermostatic mixers to the market, offering them in 100 colours. In 2003, the company dedicated an entire department to stainless steel taps, a decision that was anything but trivial. This choice underscored the brand's commitment to making exclusive contemporary products with reduced environmental impacts.
For CRISTINA Rubinetterie, innovating and producing increasingly effective solutions does not mean betraying core values. The company has chosen to invest in the Alto Novarese territory to bring consumers and visitors to the real home of the Made-in-Italy tradition. While maintaining its strong Italian roots, the brand forcefully and successfully penetrated intercontinental markets from America to the Far East.
CRISTINA Rubinetterie partnerships and awards ofOver the years, the company has benefited from the work of many internationally renowned designers. From 1999 to 2005, award-winning Makio Hasuike designed the Diario, Rubinetto and the SX collections. SX won the 2018 Archiproducts Design Award. Jean-Michel Wilmotte, a member of the French Academy of Fine Arts, collaborated with CRISTINA Rubinetterie in 2007, creating the Modul collection.
The Busetti Garuti Redaelli trio partnered with the company, bringing their creative energy to the field of faucets and furnishing accessories; the collaboration culminated in 2017 with the creation of the Italy series, awarded the ADI Ceramics & Bathroom Design Award. CRISTINA Rubinetterie also partners actively with the renowned firm MC2 Architetti Associati devoted to environmental sustainability, designers of the King and Queen collections in 2011.
