VAO Sofa and Armchair Paolo castelli



PAOLO CASTELLI S.p.A., before being a company, represents the history of a family and a tradition began in the years immediately after Italian unity towards the end of the nineteenth century. In 1887, Ettore Castelli decided to open a cabinetry shop in Bologna, introducing not only a workshop, but a specific “know-how” that has been lasting for over a century. During the twentieth century Castelli family has suited the company to the changes and trends of the period, but keeping its know-how and craft dimension that has always characterized its business since its foundation.

In 1994,the young Paolo, Ettore’s great-grandson and the second-to-last of seven brothers, just after his degree in Political Sciences, received the task of raising again the status of Modular, the family drapery business. In a few years he balanced the company and had an intuition: merge Modular with Domodinamica, a society specialised in furnishing and design. From this idea has been developed a rich collection of icons that have made the history of design, including prestigious creations by the hands of famous designers and now hosted in great museums around the world.

In 2011, the union of Modular and Domodinamica became Paolo Castelli S.p.A, a company with its headquarter-design studio in Ozzano dell’Emilia, which deals with design, product design and general contractor projects. Quoting Castelli’s words, “craftwork is art”. Paolo Castelli S.p.A. counts firstly on the know-how of trusted craftspeople networks, who work few kilometers away from the company HQ, and secondly on the creative verve of great artists and designers, such as Michele De Lucchi, Luigi Cerri, Stefano Giovannoni and Luca Scacchetti, who designed for Domodinamica, just to name a few. The strengths that enabled the company to grow in Italy and abroad consist on its ability to work on complex projects without losing the craftsman-like approach applied to production, together with an absolute care for high quality and details. As a matter of fact, the company has become one of the best expressions of Made in Italy.

After more than 100 years, the ancient “savoir faire” finds its highest expression in a laboratory where tailor-made projects are achieved: from small exclusive supplies till large projects for hotels, libraries, ships, museums, airports, up to Expo 2015. In fact, the interior of the Italian Pavilion at the Universal Exposition represents a “Made in Bologna” masterpiece, being one of the greatest challenges of Paolo Castelli: “it was like building the Eiffel Tower”.


PAOLO CASTELLI S.p.A. can indeed count on a network of artisans of trust and flair of engineers and designers, who recognize the company as a reliable partner. The ability to work on complex projects and products without losing the artisan soul of production, the high quality and attention to details are key factors that have enabled the company to continue growing in Italy and abroad and become one of the highest expressions of the Made in Italy.
