Since 1925, when established by the brothers Giulio and StefanoPorro, the Porro family manages a company supporting a unique furnishing philosophy, matching handcraft tradition of the time with the most modern advanced manufacturing and information technologies. Since then, the brand has been dedicated to the production of functional furniture fused with advanced manufacturing technologies and constant research on materials and shapes. Porro has been in collaboration with many renowned designers for its design projects, including Jean Marie Massaud, Christophe Pillet, Piero Lissoni, and the Swedish group, Front. The company’s Gentle chair (designed by Front) and Tiller sideboard (designed by Lissoni) won the Interior Innovation Award 2013, one of the most renowned design awards in the interior furnishing industry worldwide organised by the German Design Council.
