Silvio Cavatorta took the reins of the Roman family business Cavatorta in the 1930s. The company produced its furniture in small and exclusive series and its main customers were embassies, hotels, schools and ships. Each furniture was uniquely designed for each specific commission. While most of the other well-known and Italian designers in the second half of the twentieth century embraced industrial methods of production and reproduction, the company Cavatorta remains true to its standards in the rejection of large industrial production and in favour of valuable materials and incomparable craftsmanship. Thanks to unique commissions, the artisanal and material production style of the family business and a cosmopolitan interest that went beyond Italian design, Cavatorta furniture remains unique, rare and of the highest quality, both from an aesthetic and constructive point of view.
