KRISTALIA – Kristalia was founded in 1994 by the will of a group of young jazz fans from Friuli who did the smartest, easiest and most instinctive thing one could think of: they took a look at their immediate surroundings – north-east Italy where the company was going to be based – and discovered completely new design sectors through which the best products of this land could be expressed: mountain boots, the production of automobile parts, clothing and knitwear. They then decided to give a new rhythm to these places to move them towards design innovation.
The first collection was delivered in 1995 and mainly included materials from the fashion and sport sectors thus appealing a public that could be interested in both contemporaneity and tradition, with a focus on details.
In the late 90’s Kristalia started proposing items with a distinguishing essential character and easy suitability, addressing a younger public tuned on the requirements of modern living.
Many awards, the latest of which is Young&Design 2003 bestowed to the BOUM chair, designed by Monica Graffeo, witness the great care that Kristalia devotes to aesthetics and design of its production.
