RL News: Calligaris Opens New BGC Showroom
Bring home something smart, beautiful, and Italian from Calligaris
Italian furniture brand Calligaris made quite a splash last March 12 with the launch of its brand new showroom at Bonifacio Global City. Seen welcoming guests to the showroom during the launch was Alessandro Calligaris, company chairman and member of the family’s third generation. By his side was Florence Ko, Managing Director of Gruppo Mobili Philippines, Inc., the distributor of Calligaris in the Philippines and also the parent company of luxury home store Furnitalia, custom closet and kitchen crafters Space 2000, and lighting specialist store Lucem.
“We’re very excited with the launch of Calligaris’ new home and showroom at BGC,” says Florence Ko. “Calligaris is a global Italian brand known for its stylish modern aesthetic, quality craftsmanship, and smart design. Calligaris is perfect for young, upwardly mobile professionals looking to furnish their condos or houses with designer furniture at reasonable price points.”
The history of Calligaris dates back to 1923, with the production of the “Marocca” chair, distinctive for its sturdy wooden frame, hand-woven rush seat, and slightly curved legs. Since then, the name Calligaris has grown to become a leader in home furnishings, expanding its range with complete furnishing solutions including chairs, tables, beds, sofas, storage units and decorative accessories. While its woodpecker logo symbolizes the tireless worker with a passion for wood, Calligaris also utilizes metal, plastic, leather and glass in its creations.
Based in Manzano, Calligaris is distributed in 90 countries but maintains its Italian heritage at its core, with its designs proudly stemming from the analysis of form and function, using combinations of materials, experimentation, and continuous innovation. Whether for an expansive home or a city condominium with space constraints, the Calligaris brand offers products suitable for every corner of the house—from dining and living room to bedroom, kitchen, and home office.
The Calligaris showroom is located at the Mezzanine Floor, Clipp Center, 11th Avenue corner 39th Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. For inquiries, you may call (02) 8691059-61 or email info.calligaris[at]furnitalia.com.ph.
