Arketipo is a Florence-based company specialised in producing handcrafted upholstered furniture according to the traditions of Argentinean craftsmanship.
The Greek word “Arketipo” means “original model” and expresses the companies desire to transform ideas into “first” objects. This is why materials and finishes are carefully selected to create unique furnishings: metal, wood and fabric are not just materials, they are ideas from which new and diverse creations emerge continuously. Artisans, designers and collaborators work together to turn clients’ dreams into real pieces of furniture. The company studies lifestyles and, driven by insatiable curiosity, it explores new ways of living to anticipate needs and give clients what they truly need.
All of this is inspired by the place where Arketipo has developed, the city of Florence, universally known as the Cradle of the Renaissance, a symbol of art and culture. These values permeate the brand’s creations, as the company dedicates its efforts and research to carrying forth the highest values of Italian culture. The connection with the city is also clear from the company’s logo, a symbol of their strong ties to the territory.
Perfection does not exist, but that is what Arketipo is aiming for. Passion, quality and maniacal attention to detail have allowed them to create a collection of sofas, armchairs, chairs, beds, tables and accessories that furnish every room in the home with elegant modern style. Arketipo does not mass produce anything. Each piece has unique aspects derived from the purity of the materials - wood, metal and fabric. Each furnishing is seen as a journey towards perfection, a path made up of ideas and history that enhances the final product with added value to make it unique and inimitable.
