Salone del Mobile 2019
Since 1911 Billiani has been producing wooden seating.
Woodworking has always been the Billiani speciality, and this has developed into a deep understanding of wood types, craftsmanship, manufacturing expertise and an eye for stylish design. A successful family history, which has its origins in Manzano, Friuli, in North-East Italy, and which has placed Billiani chairs everywhere: all produced entirely in Italy, along with international designers, and selected in contract projects the world over.
In a desire for continuous renewal, whilst respecting traditions and family identity, from February 2019 Billiani has entrusted its artistic direction to Cristina Celestino, a Friulian architect and designer with her studio in Milan. In a wider process of corporate rebranding, her role will extend from the design and development of products to the search for a different way of presenting the brand.
