Edizioni De Padova
In the 60s Maddalena De Padova imports from the USA the concept of “connections”: the stylistic innovation connects the single objects and furniture pieces to the environment, not selling a design product, but matching them harmoniously.
In 1984 Maddalena decided to restart production of furniture and objects with the De Padova marque. This was the origin of the first pieces bearing the Edizioni De Padova imprint, which eventually grew into the De Padova collection: the contemporary design by Achille Castiglioni, Vico Magistretti, Dieter Rams is mixed with anonymous design objects, in order to furnish both domestic and office environments.
After the Editions of Maarten Van Severen (LC03 in 2003 and LL04 in 2004), Paolo Tilche (Rea and Silvia in 2018), Fratelli Monti (T.54 in 2018), De Padova presents other four reissues:
Paul McCobb: American designer of the 1950s / 1960s with an impressive range of multi-functional furniture, accessories and textiles, as well as several notable interior design projects. Since his death in 1969 his designs have not been in production, but are now making their way back to the market through a range of re-issues. De Padova chooses to reissue the armchair Wing Back, 1956.
Jens Risom: a Danish American furniture designer, who introduced Scandinavian design in the United States producing extraordinaire armchairs, tables and chairs. De Padova proposes the coffee table Connecticut designed in 1965.
Antonio Morganti: Milanese architect and designer, with many products designed for Italian companies. De Padova reissues the table Carlo, designed in 1989 and revisited with Renato J. Morganti.
Paolo Tiche: Milanese architect, entrepreneur and designer. De Padova presents the lamp Anna, originally designed in 1962.
