With the collaboration of the most famous designers Artelinea offers the market bathroom furniture of the highest level both in design and in materials and quality. Human capital, a sense of belonging and entrepreneurial courage have always distinguished the growth of the company, which from places considered the heart of the Renaissance and universally recognized as the cradle of art, architecture, fashion and beauty, can now boast an international dimension. Thanks to the contribution of sons Massimo and Marco, and collaborations with designers and universities, Artelinea offers the highest quality and largely custom-made products, distributed through stores and showrooms throughout Western Europe and the United States.

Even before designing a product, The company focuses on the study of materials: this is the key to understanding their collaborations with the Chemistry Department of the University of Florence, the School of Glass in Murano, Venice, and numerous researchers, as well as their continuous investments in technology. They make use of machinery and furnaces that allow for the best workmanship: with stubbornness and through insights and experience, they work to achieve consistently spectacular baths and sinks. The high standard of quality is everything for Artelinea, as is the exclusivity inherent in the custom fabrication of mirrors, sinks, countertops, furniture and accessories. Every stage of workmanship takes place in-house, under the close control of staff members: cutting, bending, grinding, casting, painting, and laser machining on the latest cutting table. Even the furniture is entirely produced by the skilled craftsmen in the carpentry shop, which is directly connected to the lighting department where mirrors are mounted and wiring is done.
