The Castiglia Associati studio
In 1982 Sergio Castiglia, Marinella Santarelli and Maria Tiziana Tazza establish Castiglia Associati, which specialises in design, creative supervision, interiors and architecture. Today the firm collaborates with top-tier companies, including: Salvarani (kitchens), Concept (office furniture), Inda, Alma, Rifra (bathroom furniture), Feg (living area furniture); Vistosi (lamps) and Arpa Industriale (laminates). The firm also carried out numerous studies on the contents and themes of today's aesthetics, focusing on creative scenarios and manufacturing realities.
Many of their popular products have been recommended or received awards at exhibitions and trade fairs: recommendation from ADI, Italy's Industrial Design Association, for Freeway for Concept (2000); ADI recommendation for Casta Diva for Alma's Ferroli brand (2004); Comfort & Design award, again for Casta Diva for Alma at the Fiera di Milano (2004).
