Casamania: Combining exceptional quality with playful design
Founded in 1984 by Elis Doimo, Casamania is an Italian-based furniture design company dedicated to playful, contemporary design.
The company has a forward-thinking approach that is evident in all of their adventurous designs. They combine this playful, daring attitude with excellent quality, resulting in a sought-after collection that is a step above the norm.
Take their Valises Wardrobe for example – a stylish wardrobe system that is made from a playful arrangement of units. The differing sized cabinets and mis-matched colourful door fronts are a breakaway from conventional wardrobe designs and work to inject an element of fun into an everyday item.
The Valises is not the only product to embody this adventurous spirit however – the entire Casamania collection follows this innovative path. The Twine Coffee Table is contemporary table design that is made in the shape of a button, the Him&Her Chair is imprinted with the silhouette of a man/woman’s back and legs and the Marie Antoinette Pop Mirror has three different-sized hooks built-in to its design. These are just a few examples of the wonderfully innovative items in their collection.
Despite the high level of craftsmanship and expertise that goes in to each and every design, the products are available at a fabulous and affordable price point. Meduse, seen in green below, and a Bek Folding Chair.
The company’s innovative approach can be seen most evidently in the designers they choose to collaborate with. They have worked with some of the world’s most talented and cutting-edge designers including GamFratesi, Benjamin Hubert and Luca Nichetto, and have many more exciting collaborations in the pipeline – watch this space!
