Designer Jeff Miller met with Rochester Institute of Technology Industrial Design students for a discussion about his Clipt Chair. Miller recently donated a chair and process work to the Vignelli Center’s Product Time Capsule collection.
In 1984 Enrico Baleri founded Baleri Italia, a company manufacturing quality furniture with a high design content, developing products with strong formal and functional qualities and a commitment toward research, development and talent-scouting. While collaborating with successful designers such as Alessandro Mendini, Angelo Mangiarotti and Denis Santachiara among others, Baleri Italia has launched many new talents such as the young Philippe Starck, Hannes Wettstein and Luigi Baroli.
In 2004 Nino Cerruti became a majority share-holder of Baleri Italia with the objective of developing a new industrial project that could also benefit from his long and successful experience in the textile and fashion businesses. In a short time this process developed into the complete acquisition of the company, the creation of a new managing group, with a new art director and a renewed internal team. Formal and functional research, as well as talent-scouting, continued to be the core activities of the company as shown by the collections presented since 2005 which introduced the work of new talents such as Jeff Miller, Arik Levy, Ilse Crawford, Alberto Colzani and Xavier Lust.
In 2010 baleri Italia officially became cerruti baleri – a natural evolution of the brand that states the consistent and yet evolving character of its history. Cerruti Baleri is an editor and as such it chooses an editorial guideline that expresses itself through the products of the collection and of the edizioni line. For Cerruti Baleri the formal gesture is no longer a sufficient distinguishing element. On the other hand the use of materials such as solid wood, marble, hide leather and fabrics become extremely significant as they express timeless and ecological values. Valuable materials combined with creative intelligence and quality manufacturing define the products and are the true protagonists of the collection.
