Calligaris: Making it Possible to Bring Home Something Smart, Beautiful, and Italian



Calligaris, a leader in Italian home furnishings, recently opened a brand new showroom in Bonifacio Global City. This brand, based out of Manzano, Italy, was founded in 1923 by Mr. Antonio Calligaris and is now sold in 90 countries. It has over 7,000 products that would look great in various parts of one's home. 


Aside from Calligaris' vibrant red theme color, I am fascinated by its woodpecker logo, which I found out symbolizes the tireless worker with a passion for wood. This, I believe, is a fitting tribute to Calligaris' beginnings because Antonio's first product was the iconic Marocca chair, distinctive for its sturdy wooden frame, hand-woven rush seat, and slightly curved legs.  


Now, Calligaris designs use combinations of materials, experimentation, and continuous innovation. The brand has ongoing collaborations with leading designers and up-and-coming talents. Together with their R&D team, they develop solutions to answer the differing needs of their increasingly global market.


Mr. Alessandro Calligaris, company chairman and member of the family's third generation, was present to grace the BGC showroom opening. By his side was Ms. Florence Ko, Managing Director of Gruppo Mobili Philippines, Inc., the distributor and brand partner of Calligaris in the country. Gruppo is also the parent company of luxury home store Furnitalia, custom closet and kitchen crafters Space 2000, and lighting specialist store Lucern.


"We're very excited with the launch of Calligaris' new home and showroom at BGC," shared Ms. Ko. "Calligaris is a global Italian brand known for its stylish modern aesthetic, quality craftsmanship, and smart design. [It] is perfect for young, upwardly mobile professionals looking to furnish their condos or houses with designer furniture at reasonable price points."


The range of products include chairs, tables, beds, sofas, storage units, and decorative accessories. Among the many innovative Calligaris furnishings are the Gamera chair, made from one-piece polyamid shell suitable for indoor or outdoor use; the Lam table, a harmonious amalgam of metal and wood available in fixed-length or extending versions; and the modular Urban sofa, which offers multiple configurations to fit unique needs. 


Then there is also Calligaris CODE, a capsule collection featuring extraordinary and surprising furniture designed by young avant-garde artists from Italy. The brand maintains its Italian heritage at its core, making each individual piece into a beautiful work of art that will look great in specific corners of the house. 


Come visit the Calligaris showroom located at the Mezzanine floor of Clipp Center, 11th Avenue corner 39th Street in BGC, Taguig. For inquiries, please call (02) 869.1059 to 61 or email info.calligaris@furnitalia.com.ph.
