The Derby armchair and sofa are designed by Laura Silvestrini. Derby is a comfortable Nordic inspired jewel of a sofa, which warms a room with reflections of wood, adapting itself to different solutions. It is ideal for in/out projects, for those areas which combine indoor and outdoor living.
Laura Silvestrini was born in 1962. In 1988, she graduated magna cum laude from the University Institute of Architecture in Venice.
From 1988 to 1993, Laura worked for Romano Burelli’s studio in Udine on various projects including national and international competitions. From 1994 till 1998 she worked with Toni Follina on different important projects such as a hotel in Odessa, a multi-functional building in Oderzo, the restoration of the Treviso Chamber of Commerce and the competition for the National Museum of South Korea.
Laura Silvestrini collaborated with Massimo Scolari on his installation at the VI International Architectural Exhibition during the Venice Biennale in 1996. She currently lives and works in Colle Umberto (Treviso) where she opened her own studio in 1999.
Maximum quality, aesthetical innovation, ability in processing and "Made in Italy" are the historical prerogatives of Giorgetti, originally founded as an artisanal cabinetmaking laboratory in Meda, Brianza, in 1898.
The indisputable protagonist of Giorgetti furniture is solid wood, a natural material and often the hidden core of its objects. The company has distinguished itself on the design furniture scene not only for the high quality of its raw materials but also for its manual skills tradition and heritage.
Giorgetti creations fully embrace the concept of Conceived and Manufactured in Italy: starting from design, creativity and style, all the way to production, the entire process is Made in Italy. Moreover, the collections are known for their functionality and quality materials which guarantee a long life, as well as being made by production processes which are totally environmentally friendly.
The Giorgetti style is characterized by exclusivity and atypical uniqueness: the aim to create original and recognizable collections was the prerequisite which led the company to collaborate with professionals - architects, urban planners, intellectuals, artists - who had never considered designing furniture. A brave initiative which started at the end of the 80s and continues today, imparting an exclusive design to Giorgetti’s pieces. This choice is accompanied by a shared ideal that both the company and the designers fully embrace: to create "timeless" objects which never go out of fashion.
Giorgetti is like an art and history gallery of Made in Italy, with design, manual skill and over a hundred years of tradition; a standard on the furniture sector scene.
