From personal to collective spaces we believe in contemporary design, built for living and made to last.
We were born in 1994 thanks to the idea of some young entrepreneurs with a passion for design. We were in the right place, in the heart of a production district that still has innovation and excellence as its strengths. We wanted to show how technology and creativity could accompany ‘made in Italy’ design into the new millennium. We have grown fast, thanks to projects that have interpreted the spirit of the times and to customers who have embraced our vision. Our collection is about inspiration and falling in love, it’s the outcome of collaborating with some of the most interesting personalities in contemporary design.
We are an Italian company that has been producing lightweight, minimalist furniture and furnishing accessories for homes and community spaces since 1994. Being Kristalia has entailed ideas, time and especially values. Our commitment and design concept envisages that the same furniture, in terms of function and aesthetics, can furnish homes, restaurants and hotels, as well as indoor and outdoor spaces.
Our unique originality
Of all the attributes that describe our collection – coherent, minimalist, functional – the one we prefer is original. Because we like to do things the way nobody else does them.
Seizing the moment every day
Our favourite dimension is the present. Interpreting the spirit of the times, we believe that there is nothing more beautiful than reality.
Thinking ahead about quality
For us, quality is synonymous with sustainability. Designing furniture with excellent materials, intended for a long life and producing them locally in Italy is a way of respecting the future and resources, as well as the people who choose us.
Informality, a casual way of life
There’s nothing in our collection that we would not also like to have in our own home. We love real homes, lives that are lived, bookcases full of books that have been read and the ineffable beauty of casualness.
Club Kristalia, to the rhythm of jazz
If we hadn’t started making furniture, we would have opened a jazz club. But since we are believe that all opportunities must be grasped, and passions lived to the full, we have dedicated a space to music, and more generally to culture, at our premises. It’s open to everyone – a way to stay curious and thankful to our community.
Doing things the right way
We are based in Prata di Pordenone, in the middle of an industrial area, but you wouldn’t know that because there’s plenty of light, greenery and beauty around us. Built in 2014 on a disused production site, our headquarters was designed to be sustainable in terms of energy and people, with work areas that leave space for relaxation and leisure.
The places around us
We are the way we are, also thanks to the surrounding area. The broader area – the Italy of design, art and beauty – and the smaller area of Friuli and Pordenone. From the windows of our headquarters, we can see the Friulian Dolomites; from those of our showroom, the spires of Milan Cathedral.
Know-how and innovation
Kristalia represents the finest industrial craftsmanship. Innovative and technological, the company brings together manual skills with standard reproduction, highly specialised operators with mechanical production, efficiency and slow production. At Kristalia, the multidisciplinary Bluezone team experiments with materials and construction methods.
Materials and colours
Italy is where 100% of our production takes place and where more than 90% of the raw materials we use – glass, steel, polypropylene, aluminium and wood – are sourced. Going against the trend, we also carry out some in-house processing, and in our powder coating centre we have created new colours: Exclusive Colors finishes. Much of our knowledge of materials springs from the vibrant industrial context all around us: technical clothing, automotive components and knitwear, to name but a few, are a constant inspiration to us to innovate and evolve.
How we communicate
Kristalia has an in-house creative team that oversees each stage in the development of a new product, as well as brand communication. This strategy has helped us maintain our original image and a coherent tone of voice while making the work environment more dynamic and friendly.
Doing things well in a sustainable way, it’s certified
We aim to create products that last, so we set ourselves extremely high standards of quality and work consciously, starting with the design. We carefully select materials and suppliers, monitor our energy consumption and emissions while producing our own energy with photovoltaic panels. All our products are internally tested by Ercole, a machine that performs many more tests and cycles than those required at the Italian and international level. They are tested by external bodies, which certify their mechanical resistance, reaction to fire, health and safety, and always produce excellent results. We are working towards obtaining Carbon Footprint certification and specific certifications (EPD environmental declaration and LCA – Life Cycle Assessment) for our new products.
KRISTALIA. Forever furniture. From personal to collective spaces we believe in contemporary design, built for living and made to last.
Kristalia was founded in 1994 by the will of a group of young jazz fans from Friuli who did the smartest, easiest and most instinctive thing one could think of: they took a look at their immediate surroundings – north-east Italy where the company was going to be based – and discovered completely new design sectors through which the best products of this land could be expressed: mountain boots, the production of automobile parts, clothing and knitwear. They then decided to give a new rhythm to these places to move them towards design innovation.rnrnA few years later, Kristalia was already a landmark in Italy and beyond. At the outset of the 21st century the company made the history of extending tables. In the second decade of the century it became one of the design firms that particularly attracted designers. A few years ago it also opened up to the world of hospitality contract supplies.rnrnNowadays, once sceptical sub-contractors are the first to contact Kristalia to develop new ideas. The meaning: to establish a sound and lasting relationship with a family of designers and artisans, opening up to new talents capable of communicating with an accurate, clean-cut and visionary language and with a very strong bent for innovation.
