Legnoart (pronounced Lay-no-art) is made in the northern italian town of Omegna, about 50 miles from Milan. Omegna, built around Lake Orta and surrounded by mountains, is a beautiful part of the world.
This area has a long history of working with wood and stainless steel and is home to several well-known design-led housewares companies. The business is run by Enrico Albertini and is very much a family business. Enrico does the designs himself. He likes products that share form and function. They must be beautiful to look at and perform well too. Each product must be perfect, true to the designer's creation, no matter if is more difficult to produce or takes a little longer. The amount of work necessary to create these items mean they will be out of reach of many people but they are a "must have" for anyone seeking product at the pinnacle of design and manufacturing ability.
