The Ceccotti Collezioni story heralds from Ceccotti Aviero, a company founded in 1956, specializing in the production of residential furniture and later in supplying hotels. The company collaborated with some of the most prestigious hotel groups in the world, Trusthouse Forte from London, Sheraton and Ciga, giving an international application to the traditional artisan workmanship of the Tuscan town of Cascina, nestled between Florence and Pisa, where the company is based. From the ‘School of Art’ in Cascina came the designers and skilled craftsmen who developed an artisanal culture in furniture making and wood processing. The company continues to grow, inspired by the countless collaborations that determines its development and expansion.In 1986 the renowned Italian architect Paolo Portoghesi, theorist of the ‘post modern’ contributed to the design of some of the most recognizable and prestigious pieces produced by the company.It is only with the birth of Ceccotti Collezioni by Franco Ceccotti that contemporary design becomes a significant cornerstone of the company.Thanks to the intuition and perception of Franco Ceccotti and architect Roberto Lazzeroni, also from Pisa, with the ‘know-how’ that the company had, gave life to the first collection ‘Dedos Tenidos’, receiving critical acclaim in the world of contemporary design. Experimenting with new shapes and materials, influenced by the eclectic and surrealistic world of Gaudi, Mollino and Scandinavian designs of the 1950’s, Ceccotti Collezioni developed objects of organic sinuosity, anthromorphic shapes, where soft curves connected with slipping profiles.
