Bonaldo Receives Good Design Award

The Good Design Award, the prize for design excellence in the showroom section, has been awarded to Bonaldo. The Golden Design award was established by the Chicago Athenaeum, a prestigious U.S. arts institution dedicated to design in all its forms and expressions: architecture, urban planning, industrial design and graphics. The jury met in November in Los Angeles to evaluate over 500 designs from 38 countries to make their decision. Designed by Mauro Lipparini, the 60,000 sq. ft. showroom is truly a gem found in Padova, Italy. After 26 months of gutting, refacing, and redesigning an already existing building, Bonaldo opened their doors to their new home.

Founded by Albino Bonaldo in 1936 has become a big player in the design world. Working with international designers such as Karim Rashid, Mauro Lipparini, Toshiyuki Kita, Ron Arad and Giuseppe Vigano has allowed the company to continue to grow an elegant and versatile collection for both the home and commercial market.

Bonaldo has always pushed the envelope when it comes to experimentation. Sixty years ago it began with its range of tubular metal applications and today it conducts wide-ranging research into plastics, the use of different alloys and the use of materials such as pressure cast aluminum, flexible cold-pressed polyurethane and propylene. The company has a high-tech focus, however it entrusts fundamental planning and production stages to human skill. Output reflects Italian tastes and lifestyle, something unique to Italy that cannot be reproduced elsewhere. With many design awards under their belt, this is truly a company to follow for years to come as they will continue to create and produce some of the most beautiful furniture in the world.

Suite 22 Goes Social

With our new site up and running, we have made the first step into the “social” world with Twitter. We are proud to say that we are now ‘tweeting’ on the regular for all to read. This is a great opportunity for us to announce upcoming sales, new product arrivals, monthly giveaways and share news from within the design world. Using social media is a wonderful way for us to deal with our clients on a more personal level. We encourage discussion as we love learning more about the people who surround us and what interests them. Design is an ongoing conversation that has been around since the beginning of time and we feel we have some things to share so follow us at LifeIsSuite22 and join the evolution.

New Suite 22 Website Launched

After many months of planning, redesigning, and asking for customer feedback to ensure our new website provided the user experience our customers have come to expect from Suite 22 Interiors – the site has finally launched. We felt, like many others, that we outgrew our last website as our product selection has grown over the years. Taking that into consideration, our vision was to be able to display all of our beautiful products by taking a very clean approach – allowing you to take a visual journey of our well curated selection of some of the best of what Italy has to offer. With the advent of social media and its ability to facilitate communication across multiple channels; we recognized it was a very important piece of the puzzle for the new site and for Suite 22 Interiors in general. With that said, we have integrated several social functions including the ability for visitors to socialize content from our site through popular social channels like Twitter and Facebook. You can share your passion for design and items that interest you with your friends and family. We invite you to follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook for access to exclusive sales, new products launches, upcoming events, designer interviews, and more.

We will continue to add user-friendly features such as these to make your time on our site well spent and highly engaging. Other features we’re really excited about are the site integration with gift registry applications, virtual tours, and possibly a shopping cart as we move forward. We welcome your feedback on our new website as your input is greatly appreciated. Working closely with our customers is largely responsible for our ability to constantly raise the bar on customer service and product selection. We are here for our customers and thank you for the opportunity to tailor an experience that fits your needs. This is an important step in fostering a positive and more interactive relationship with all of our fans and followers and we look forward to ensuring your experience with Suite 22 Interiors is nothing short of outstanding and truly memorable.
