Danese was founded in 1958 by Bruno Danese and Jacqueline Vodoz showing one-of-a-kind artistic productions. A landmark meeting with Bruno Munari and Enzo Mari marked a step forward from the production of unique objects to serial production. Thus was born a new collection of home objects no longer addressed just to an elite market. Danese became a real experimental laboratory for the concept and production of serial objects through the 1960's and 1970's. In 1999 Danese again found its own leading role in the diversified universe of Italian design thanks to the take-over of the company by Carlotta de Bevilacqua, who became sole administrator.
Danese re-established itself as a leader in improving quality of life in the corporate environment. It now faces the challenge of contemporary perspectives as the relationships between human beings and objects change and evolve at a rapid rate according to new lifestyles. The immediate results are designs which allow a flexibility of usage and function.
