The company also produces furnitur and lighting for its own registered brands: Inspiration and Greenkiss.

TIimeless elegance: Furnishings interpreted to give a realistic vision of the evolution of a style of international elegance.
GREENKISS: 30 eco-responsible products which express not only the importance of the functional and aesthetic aspects of furnishings but also emphasise the value and charm of the way in which ethical design becomes the driving force behind a renewed sense of positivity and empathy towards the environment as a “resource”. The collection comprises tables, armchairs, seats and light fittings, and reflects the finest Italian and French design of the Fifties and Seventies. An ethical collection resulting from the creative talents of designers Hubert de Malherbe and Thierry Lemaire, combined with the savoir-faire of Paolo Castelli. What are the limits of elegance when using surprising new materials, moulded into the purest forms? We leave it up to you to judge.
