Bartoli Design

FIAM's partnership with Bartoli Design Studio has allowed the creation of different tables in curved glass: Ray, Ray Plus, Ray Plus Black, Sahara and Rime.

The studio was established in 1960 by Carlo Bartoli; today the team comprises Carlo, Paola and Anna Bartoli.

The studio's research focuses on a poetic language based on simplicity and balance. The studio's activities embrace a complete spectrum of design services: from the initial concept of product and communication strategies to product development.

In addition to the several partnerships with leading companies in the furniture industry,  Carlo Bartoli has exhibited his work in Italy and abroad:  at the Triennale Design Museum in Milan, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Stadtmuseum in Cologne, as well as in New York, Prague, Hong Kong, Athens and Buenos Aires.
