Doing things well for a company producing lighting design and furnishing items, means to express a way to be and a precise attitude. It means to purposely design in an understated way a personal idea of what freedom is, a personal idea of new, of something you don’t look for, because you live with it every day. TATO’s design concept results in a new economic and cultural scenario and in a future-oriented tradition of manual dexterity, knowledge of gestures and materials, handicrafts. All those elements that make Italy well-known in the world. There is no industry that can do without handicrafts. TATO takes culture into particular account and is engaged in many processes. TATO likes to dig out from history those objects that are produced today but belong to our recent past or just to our past.
Rewire Selects from TATO include Coppa Aperta (1954) by Corrado Corradi Dell’Acqua, Alzabile (1948) by Ignazio Gardella, Luna (1957) and Bilia (1932) by Gio Ponti and Siderea (1969) by Alberto Rosselli
