Award-Winning Design

Each Sambonet product is a unique design work, where originality and craftsmanship are combined with technical innovation. The consolidated know-how allows to propose on the market exclusive products that stand out for the unique and award-winning design, signed Sambonet.

70 YEARS OF DESIGN

Our creative touch

Undoubtedly the distinctive trait in Sambonet's work and design is given by its autonomy in realization, from the concept and the design phase to the production phase, thus giving all products a clear connotation of craftsmanship: 90% of the products are in fact signed by the in-house design center. This has always helped to strengthen the brand identity, making it exclusive and unmistakable in the international panorama.
