Design for contemporary living.
Design has to inspire.
- Mario Gagliardi
The Designer
Designer Mario Gagliardi creates avant-garde, yet timeless accessories and interior objects. With an Italian ancestry reaching back to the 11th century, Mario's work reflects on history and symbolism and connects it to modernity through functionality and iconic forms. Mario's furniture invites users to interact so that they can shape their own personal environment. The Mario Casa collection is joyful, luxurious, sustainable and custom-made for contemporary living - individual, flexible, and always comfortable.
Mario Gagliardi studied under design legends Alessandro Mendini and Richard Sapper before working as chief designer of LG, advisor of Samsung, and CEO at Qatar Foundation. A deeply imaginative thinker, Mario is working worldwide as designer and design professor. In South Korea, Mario created Whoo, Asia's most successful luxury cosmetics line.
The Design

Smart furniture objects are designed to adapt to the flexible demands of contemporary living. The lounge chair Cambiamento changes colors to always fit your mood.
Design has to be fun.
- Mario Gagliardi
The lounge chair Library becomes a casual suite to invite convivial get-togethers.
The side table Wiggle turns into a shelf if storage is needed.
Cavaliere is a side table, stool, and, when turned upside down, decorative vase. Borgo is a set of architectural side tables with a special geometry, inviting you to create many different arrangements.
Sottosopra is an accent chair with unique handwoven surfaces in multicolored cotton. Turn it upside down for a higher sitting position and different colors.

Design has to last.
