Orlandini Design is a new reality created by Paolo Orlandini. In 2009 its long partnership with Roberto Lucci (started in 1968) has dissolved and now, with a young team of creative designers, continues its work as Orlandini Design. A studio where a long experience in design business has merged with a smart attention to new trends and technologies.
In the designs of Orlandini Design simplicity is the most remarkable feature. Simplicity means designing simple technical solutions that make the product both economical and reliable. It also means designing with an eye to the manufacturing problems. Planned Customisation is another important feature; products are designed with the planned potential to be personalised and modified, following the market demands. It is an innovative design method that helps manufacturers overcome price based competition.

The creative strength of designers finds its ideal outlet at Brado Factory, the technical development lab that makes dreams, experiences, and insights into a concrete reality in the form of a product/chair.
