One size does not fit all.
We are not the Big Mac of the furniture world. Uniform, mass manufactured and dull. We are the gourmet burger experience. The essence between both burgers is the same; the difference is the execution. We study, we talk, we identify, we feel different things from the raw materials, what we get is something different, every single time. Where one sees a wood, metal and cloth, we see a craft, a desire to bring a pleasurable endeavour to the soul and delight for years to come.
It’s about crafting a truly bespoke vision. One that takes our blueprint and makes it something truly unique for each and every person that chooses Arketipo; because when someone comes to Arketipo they want something that can give liberty to express themselves and their ideas. We see our role as a partner, one who can make the subtle or the bold, one who can uncover a trend and one who can make a style unique to any and every person.
Arketipo is this. Craftspeople of experiences, where every idea is considered in its approach. Our creations, designed to accommodate every client, from domestic to contract and conceptualised to be flexible in how we tailor each product from our catalogue. Whether it’s a home or hotel, our methods mean that our clients get an applied sense of what makes their choice and their furniture feel part of their world.
Identity, creativity and research.
We look at the world, the bigger picture and ask: “How can we make furniture that makes our clients shout, ‘that’s the one!’?”
Imagine having someone like Adriano Piazzesi and not challenging him and his creativity. A sculptor and painter whose early forays into design became a calling card for us. Imagine then not being challenged, not being asked to think about those things?

We’ve spent thirty years working with the best designers, collaborators, taking their backgrounds from other arts, sciences and engineering and asking them to “push themselves, be curious” and “take chances.”
We’re not a production line, a laboratory nor a focus group. We’re constantly pushing the rules, making sense of the world and creating the unexpected.
