A long experience gained from the tradition of a family-run design office started in 1960, in conjunction with an innovative dynamism - architects and designers Carlo, Anna and Paolo Bartoli started the professional association "Bartoli Design - studio associato di architettura e design" in 2007. After years of cooperation, Bartoli Design was the name already grouping Carlo, Paolo and Anna with Albertina Amadeo, Paolo Crescenti and Giulio Ripamonti since 1999.

From initial ideas for the marketing strategy, from draft designs through production development, the team's activity embraces the full spectrum of design services.

Questions & Answers
Kristalia All Lacquered Storage Unit without Feet with 2 Big Drawers
Right from the very start, Kristalia paid special attention to innovative projects, by means of experimentation and the continuing search for new technical solutions, using materials which they adapted from the fields of fashion and sports.
In the autumn of 1995, Kristalia presented its first catalogue to the commercial network. The intended target for the first products was a middle-aged consumer, oriented towards contemporary furnishing, in the upper-middle economic range and with the need to find reassuring tastes and details, bound to tradition, in the things he or she purchases.
Starting from the end of the 90's, with the creation of a definitive company organization, the desire arose to pursue a new path, and to go after customers who were not necessarily bound to tradition, offering a product with aesthetic and qualitative characteristics especially close to contemporary Italian design.
Today, the Kristalia collection offers items that stand out because of the essential character, the ease of placement, and which take into account a younger age group, in line with the current needs of daily living.
At present, Kristalia is composed of and led by people who are motivated and highly involved in the development plans. Strategies analysed by the owners are implemented only after they are presented to the entire staff. This constant search for a team spirit, a spirit in which to take as many challenges as possible, creates enthusiasm and dedication.
