It is known for innovating trends with cutting-edge furniture, fixtures, and cabinetry, as well as exploring the talents of ambitious designers and unique production methods.

Contemporary sofas, side tables, lounge chairs, accent pieces, nightstands, buffet tables, dining furniture, storage pieces, modern office furniture, and more express a sense of universal appeal that celebrates beauty and function. Since its early years, Cappellini has collaborated with emerging and international designers to produce furniture celebrated for its artistry and use of trend-setting design. The Proust Chair, by Italian designer Alessandro Mendini, combined Baroque roots with an explosion of modern color and design that expanded the scope of Italian furniture. One of the iconic brand’s most well-known design partnerships is a decades-long collaboration with British designer Jasper Morrison. The first piece in the partnership was The Thinking Man’s Chair, a unique metal easy chair fitted with armrests suitable for outdoor use. Cappellini has consistently pushed the limits of material use, with a unique range spanning from metal to rope to vinyl flooring.
