Gibraltar Furniture (800 416 3635) is furniture nirvana for wholesale classics”- Yahoo News!

CORO Italia came into being at the end of 2002 with the aim of making a place for itself in the still little-developed modern furniture, especially modern outdoor furniture design market. The first collection, designed by Stefano Gallizioli, is a complete concept, ranging from chairs and tables to BBQ Grills, aimed at a demanding and refined clientele. The materials used are the result of systematic research of prime elements having those characteristics of quality and solidity capable of guaranteeing the durability of each item in the CORO collection.

The impact of CORO’s presentation to the press was immediately positive, the quality of the imaging and the expression of the company philosophy receiving universal applause.

Over the past three years the collections have been expanded and enriched with new products proposed by young designers and by others of more established fame like James Irvine. Currently, we are present in 80 showrooms in Italy and 260 around the world and among them we can count some of the foremost opinion leaders of the market. CORO sales points are selected, differentiated and all respond to that professionalism which is fundamental in creating a relationship of trust between customer and retailer. Commercial competition is hinged upon ‘made in Italy’ values which are based on advanced technologies and the careful selection of raw materials.

Today CORO lives indoors as well. Although it originates as an outdoor collection, CORO has developed a vast and varied range which has immediately been perceived by the public for use in every living area of the house. CORO can cater for the practical and organisational necessities of the furnishing market and custom-made sector with contract solutions and tailor-made proposals. CORO has all the necessary qualities: resources, energy and market awareness. A small company, with professional management and staff, structured to answer to the needs of their customers’ new life styles. This is CORO’s objective.

HIDA SANGYO JAPANESE MODERN FURNITURE – WWW.GIBRALTARFURNITURE.COM

“Gibraltar Furniture (800 416 3635) is furniture nirvana for wholesale classics”- Yahoo News! Gibraltar Furniture is proud to introduce to the USA the finest collection of Japanese modern traditional pieces every assembled. Hida Sanygo won the  ICFF 2007 Editors Awards for Craftsmanship and is a world class manufacture of wood furniture.

The Hida Sanyo collection is at once both traditional and architectural. It includes side tables, chairs, dinning tables, credenzas, stands, and coordinating cooking vessels. This line is offered by Enzo Mari.

Hida Collections by Enzo Mari-Japan

One of the most thoughtful and intellectually provocative Italian designers of the late 20th century, Enzo Mari has a design history spanning over 50 years.

Born in Novara, Italy in 1932, he studied classics and literature at university whilst also working as a visual artist and researcher. In 1952, he opened a design studio in Milan and since then, has worked with Danese, Muji and most recently, Hida Sangyo.

The depth and complexity of Mari’s work ensures that he is greatly admired by the design community and, in his seventies, is still a very sought after designer.

Hida Sangyo was founded in 1920 and is one of the leading wooden fruniture makers of Japan, based in the Takayama region. This part of Japan is known for its excellent wood craftsmanship, originating back to the 7th Century Nara period. Craftsmen from Hida-Takayama were responsible for constructing the magnificent wooden temples of Kyoto and Nara such as the World Heritage Horyu-ji, which still stand today after 13 centuries. This collection is made predominately of the beautiful Japanese sugi wood, realized with state-of-the-art industrial technology of wood compression.

Hida Sangyo, one of the most historic woodwork furniture manufacturers in Japan, adapted an Austrian wood compression technology into the stateof- the-art method it is today, enabling craftsmen to harden the tender wood, a process which involves increasing a woods hydration and heating it up in order to soften it, then bending the wood into shape. Following that, pressure is put on the wood with a press, increasing its density by removing excess space from its cellular structure. This increases the strength and ability to manufacture the wood, as well as preventing it from changing shape in the future. (See figure above)

With the technology they developed, they also realized that by using different shaped presses, uneven surfaces as well as lamination is also possible. This new technology enables furniture to be created at lower costs with a larger variety of possible designs due to the elimination of certain stems in manufacturing.

Their furniture received huge approval from famous Italian designer Enzo Mari, who taught Okada to see the beauty of Japanese designs and to stop emulating European furniture, a style which had proved the most popular in Japan. Okada agreed but was keen that Mari should start making furniture with Hida cedar. Initially, Mari was reluctant, concerned that he might be damaging the local environment. However, the company went to Italy to explain to him that Japanese cedar, unlike other types of forest, re-grow on a 50-year cycle and it would therefore be no problem to use such trees for lumber.
