It's 1988 when Nicoletta Fontana, strongly believing in an innovative "business philosophy", founded Regia, with the development and marketing of complete collections characterised by a fresh, experimental and high-quality design. Surprisingly Regia was initially founded, to offer just accessories and decorative rugs for the bathroom. The design, the production experiments, the continuous search for new materials, together with the dynamism, the open-mindedness and courage, are the engine of this "small" company that manages to push an entire sector towards innovation. Vetro Ghiaccio, Vetro Freddo, Tecnoglass, iroko woods, maple frisé: these are some of the elements Regia bet on since the beginning, while continuing to provide value to colour and materials, as few others have been able to do. This natural inclination for "avant-garde" made it possible for Regia to gain experience in working with new development processes.
Regia designs and produces new products with original and different shapes, sizes and colours. As an example of this excellence, refer to the collections of washbasins and the Jolie bath tub (designed by Bruna Rapisarda), a real jewel of engineering, made with a single Vetro Ghiacchio casting.
Today Regia is able to offer its customers a complete and exclusive furnishing for the bathroom: complete with accessories, mirrors, washbasins and free standing washbasins, ceramic sanitaries, fittings, tubs, etc. Regia offers a wide collection of furniture, also in modular kits - as with Niki and Batik collections - characterized by an exclusive design, made specifically to meet the changing needs of the market. Powered by a young, energetic and dynamic team, expertly coordinated and supervised by Nicoletta Fontana and Daniele Cassinari, Regia is one of the leading companies in the bathroom furnishing market today.
‘’Elegant, modern, designed with a unique, original touch, to reflect my lifestyle. It is made up of furniture, washbasins, bathtubs and accessories, designed and created one by one, lacquered, sized and layouts arranged according to my needs. It is the result of sartorial care but with the latest material-processing technology and production methods.
It knows how to respect the world we live in: each panel is certified ecological, all the wood finishes are entirely water-based and all manufacturing waste is recycled.
It is the fruit of an Italian company encompassing all the values of a family, of the work of designers, creators, architects and artisans who infuse their own unique identity into each item, an energy that translates into shapes and proportions that make each product an instant classic.
It exists in eleven collections, characterised by styles which differ whilst staying 100% Italian.
It takes the spotlight in any contemporary scene that makes elegance and originality its distinguishing features. It is like me, and how I like to live. It is Falper.’’
Falpers furniture elements have always been a benchmark to the industry, both for their original design and for the vision standing behind their creation, thanks to worldwide known designers and young promising talents working for them. Only original Falper furniture carries the serial number label they use to identify their products.
As a family and a company, Fantini has always been deeply rooted in Pella, on the shores of Lake D’Orta. In this small, very special town, which the Americans would describe as “in the middle of nowhere”, water is a leading player and products are created here for daily life to bring water into their homes, continuously renewing a little drop of magic that has become essential today. If we think about it, outstanding Italian products almost always come about in small towns and villages, in isolated and sheltered places, far away from the noise of the major urban concentrations; in contrast, these rarely produce striking innovations. It is as though, in order to express itself with all its power, creativity needs isolation, concentration and total dedication.
Fantini invent and produce with a clear and ambitious aim that they never fail to meet: invention, design and technology must proceed together, as inseparable elements of creation targeted to seek perfection, with the strong conviction that innovating even the smallest detail of this production microcosm can contribute to improving the quality of life. Design is part of the company DNA and the heritage of its long experience of production: but the result of the work always comes from a team effort, from a way of proceeding that sees many players on the stage, each with his or her own role, but without any hierarchies. And from a way of proceeding that places the individual, their qualities and capacities, at the centre of the process; from designers to technicians, from managers to workers, in their own role each contributes to the final result of the product. And so it is that from here, from this small place, which sometimes is even hard to find on the map, Fantini, thanks to its capacity and its knowledge of the quality of Italian products, has disseminated its products around the world, in an international circuit that today links Shanghai, Sidney, New York, Buenos Aires, Mumbai or Cape Town virtually with Lake D’Orta and Italy.
Hotech Design produces radiators and towel warmers in a new concept, by developing a new idea of domestic heating; in the last years a strong change has been made in the field of the heating system, but the techniques of execution were only limited to the use of old materials and to the use of covers which badly hid the radiators of old conception and reduced the thermal yields.
But now the idea has a shape, it becomes an object, the prototype becomes a type of experimentation tested under working conditions : the “object” has been tested and scientifically measured by the polytechnic school in Milan to ascertain the exact characteristics and performances.
The idea becomes verified application, certified innovation and then patented.
Now the result obtained by Hotech Design is the production of radiators and towel warmers having an aesthetic functional value, which puts Hotech Design at the top of the branch. The product is the result of years of experimentation and research.
Ypsilon is a thought that has become an action materialised in design. Born in the Veneto region from the mind of Vittorio Bottacin, creative entrepreneur, it has the strength of a trademark, SCP one, within it with thirty years of history in the distribution of furniture in the foreign markets.

It develops "global" products of contemporary furniture while paying attention to the tradition, craftsmanship and technology of the products: in fact, each one of Ypsilon's products is 100% Made in Italy! Its first bathroom furniture range was designed by the Milan-based studio of the young designers Sandro Meneghello and Marco Paolelli, who have won many important international awards among which 3 nominations in Young and Design, 3 Red Dot Design Awards and 2 Design Plus. Its headquarters and showroom are located in a picturesque location, a nineteenth century villa in Padua.
“You can tell this space has the Ypsilon touch". This is our goal, our mission: to create a style, to be immediately recognisable by the design solutions we propose. A task to which we dedicate all of our time and experience, confronting daily the most dynamic ideas, choosing the most innovative materials, imagining new spaces for today's lifestyle. Ypsilon's is a wide identity that goes beyond the traditional boundaries of space and time, inventing new types of furniture that leave a mark on contemporary behaviour and lifestyles. It is a polymorphic and insatiable cell which multiplies into new forms of life. This is the beginning, the end, the absolute value, which brings forth new languages for a generation tirelessly searching for innovation, open to provocation, trained to share vocations and aspirations. Ypsilon changes the perception of reality in its constant evolution, for a new way of defining our surroundings.

This is now the mission of effegibi, the fruit of a project launched in 1987 when the company was originally founded. effegibi began life producing finnish saunas, and soon after determined to target its products not at an elite group, but at the wider public, while still maintaining meticulous attention to choice of materials and construction criteria. This paved the way for the first collection, which transformed the traditional image of the sauna and proposed a “designer” version, available in a range of different materials and styles.
Another important milestone in the company’s history was the introduction of the hammam, or turkish bath, which helped effegibi become the leading brand in the wellness sector, as it is now regarded worldwide. The ease of product installation, italian design and unqualified respect for the traditions of saunas and hammams, are the key elements at the heart of every effegibi project. It is the synthesis of these elements that makes effegibi products unique in terms of functionality and beauty, ensuring they make every house truly special.
