antoniolupi is a Tuscan company which has stood out in the design and manufacturing of bathroom furniture, both in Italy and abroad, for the past sixty years. The distinctive features of this ever-developing company are its ability to innovate by continuously creating design, while investing heavily in manufacturing technology and collaborating with well-known designers. Highest standard quality, customer care and a wide range of collections with a deep passion for work are the key factors which inspire Lupi’s family. “Tailor-made” production allows to adapt every product to the requirements of the clients through a high degree of customization. antoniolupi offers a wide variety of bathroom collections, going from a minimalistic and essential design to a decorative style featuring a new interpretation of classical shapes. Although antoniolupi began by producing exclusively bathroom accessories and mirrors, its product line now embraces the entire living space, thanks to the collaboration with established designers, such as Carlo Colombo, Nevio Tellatin, Mauro Carlesi, Michel Bouquillon, Domenico de Palo, Riccardo Fattori, Mario Ferrarini, Oscar and Gabriele Buratti. In 2014 antoniolupi started also to produce kitchens with its new project LACUCINA, designed by Marco Casamonti/Archea Associati. 


 

Company history  

Everything started around the 1950’s, Antonio Lupi was 18 years old and lived in a small town called Fucecchio where he began a completely new business for the industrial area of the Val D’Arno: working sheets of glass for furnishings. The area was predominantly a tannery and shoe industry so qualified craftsman for the type of workmanship needed didn’t exist and banks were untrustworthy of such a new business not yet developed. Antonio Lupi and his workers, which had become professionals, resisted during the hard times with stubbornness. Antonio was convinced that time would give reason. Finally the glass accessories became a huge success and had their place on the market, Antonio realized he had started an important trend and immediately changed direction in his production towards artistic mirrors, lamps, sconces and shelves. The beauty and style of the product together with a detailed, high level production imposed Lupi on the market. The necessity to grow began.

In the meantime Antonio married Mara in October of 1957 and the first three children were born, Nello, Andrea and Patrizia: Sergio, the youngest would be born a few years later. In 1969 the current establishment emerged on a hectare of land, equipped with more modern and sophisticated machines to work glass. It was a necessary and risky move from artisans to industry: it wasn’t enough to participate in the important trade shows like Bari, Milano or Paris, it was necessary to start creating permanent showrooms in Italy and abroad, create branch offices and representative agencies, hire qualified personnel, produce more while at the same time maintain the quality and characteristics of a handmade product. Those were important years, of great mutation, the product evolves and Lupi, in the ‘70’s covers the entire gamma of bathroom accessories including bath robes.

In the ‘80’s the children enter the business, there was a strong change towards design and collaboration with architects, artists and designers, the bathroom changes and Lupi becomes Antonio Lupi in honor of its founder, time goes on and a new conceptual proposal of the bathroom arises. A winning choice that takes the company to the top and to exhibit, in the year 2000, at the Salone del Mobile in Milan in the designer furniture pavilion. The family grows and the nieces and nephews are born, Jonathan, Silvia, Giorgia, Melissa, Aurora and Flavio. In 2007 after a year had passed from the death of Antonio and Mara, the company logo was redesigned to remember the graphics used for the original trademark. In 2008 the Milan showroom was inaugurated after which Perth, Chicago, Vienna, Miami and Munich followed quickly, continuing the company politics of care and attention to details, new and innovative proposals, tailor made products and complete professionalism. The evolution of design is followed sponsoring contests and shows dedicated to young talent and producing their most interesting work.
