HISTORY OF BAZZI

The history of Bazzi is the history of a family of artisans with the passion for elegant and exclusive furniture and the desire to spread it around the world. This history begins with a deep knowledge and understanding of a noble material such as wood and a master workmanship in working it, guided by the intelligence of the hands and the foresight of the heart. Bazzi truly love wood, and we have come to know all of its secrets.

Bazzi select the raw materials and patiently wait for years until their natural seasoning. Only then we can begin our work, helped by today’s technology as well as our most time-honored tools: our hands.

Over the years the “workshop” has grown, and has now turned into a “factory of ideas”, where we are able to design and manufacture custom furniture for the varying demands of today’s clients, who are more attentive and demanding than ever. In our archives we have more than 1.200 original drawings of furnishings and hundreds of projects that have created the history of our company.  We jealously guard more than 1.000 samples of models, which are all available to our customers and clients.

Bazzi were born as furniture makers over forty years ago and we will always be furniture makers. Our production relies upon a network of professionals such as architects, carvers, carpenters, upholsterers, decorators and many other artisans who work with us in order to create our furniture pieces.

All our employees believe in the company and know that their work is vital for the company growth. They are aware that the quality that we offer our customers around the world comes from their work, their motivation and the unique atmosphere that only a strong and cohesive team can guarantee.

It is no coincidence that in our team we have employees who have been working for the company for more than thirty or forty years, and still contribute every day to add a new chapter to our long history. Thanks to this climate we can face with the utmost serenity the challenges of every day, because we have a group of people who love every aspect of their work.

Production Cycle

Historical research

Our identity and style are defined as an artistic contamination of the most important and elegant styles of the past. Thorough historical research has led the company to support and believe in challenging projects that convey experiences and emotions. We interpret interior design as a way of mixing the elegance and style of the past with the exigencies and tastes of today.

Briefing, design, and creation.

Through all our history we have been constantly focusing on the design and creation of customized furnishings, where the customer can select not only sizes and finishing, but style, shape and design as well. We offer our project customer a precise work approach: after an initial briefing the concept of the Villa or the Apartment comes to life. Once approved, we move on to the working project and the drafting of detailed estimates that include inspections, the coordination work, the artistic direction, the installation and the final testing.

From design to creation, with a single partner

We also produce furnishings starting from third party project design; our mastery as craftsmen makes sure that all the pieces of furniture that come out of our factory are “art that lives in time”, creations of cosy, refined, and elegant interiors, where you can recognize and express yourself as an individual, customized environments that mirror the lifestyle of those who live there. Thanks to years of experience, we carefully select the best wood from around the world, and patiently let it season three to five years. Wood, a noble material par excellence, once in our hands takes shape and becomes the artistic motif expressing the highest level of the art of furniture making.

Unparalleled finishes

We can realize exclusive finishes that are capable of giving the furniture a particular “antique flavor” that otherwise only time can give to things; this is possible thanks to special processes and unique workmanship, performed manually, which make the furniture both glamorous and elegant. Different finishes in gold and silver leaf may offer varying degree of antiquity, depending on the style of the furniture, but always make a difference.

The art of design

Most of our best selling items are now available for 3D renders. We can also prepare exclusive 3D renders for our customers, so that they can have a very clear and detailed idea of how their future home will look like. Everything you see in our render, from furniture to tapestry, from doors to lighting, from parquets to carpets, is purchasable directly from us.

Finishing flexibility

Flexibility is our strength. We think of it as an ability to figure out different interpretations of the same environment and to realize it according to the customer’s tastes and wishes.

Serie Up 2000

The configuration of this armchair has anatomical characteristics and unmistakable anthropomorphous references. The chair is a metaphor of a large comfortable womb and recalls ancient statues of f1ertility goddesses. However, it has something extra: a spherical ottoman tied to the armchair.

Therefore, the image of comfort and convenience is combined with a more figurative image of a woman with a ball and chain on her foot. Gaetano Pesce explains the project as follows:

“At that time, I was telling a personal story about my concept of women: I believe that women have always been unwilling prisoners of themselves. This is why I decided to give this armchair the shape of a woman with a ball and chain, a traditional image of a prisoner. ”

Over the years, the UP5_6 armchair has become an international icon with different names, from “Big Mama” to “Blow Up”. It is still a very popular item.

Designed in 1969, from the onset the Up series has been one of the most outstanding expressions of design with its expressive shapes upholstered with elastic fabric. The seven items that form it include the armchair and pouf UP5_6, icon of modernity, metaphor of the female figure that is endowed with a comfortable womb and is yet a prisoner. This unrivalled icon of design is available in a junior version, wich is identical to the original except for being smaller in size. Designed for children aged over 3 years.

Gaetano Pesce

Designer

Born in La Spezia, Italy, in 1939 and educated in Venice, Gaetano Pesce has become prominent in several fields – architecture, interior design, graphics, film…. He realized numerous projects in architecture, including the Hubin apartment in Pairs (1986), the organic building in Osaka (1990), the gallery Mourmans in Knokke-le zoute, Belgium (1994), the Schuman residence in New York (1994), the office for the advertising agency twba/chiat/day (1994), or monumental glass design elements for the palais des beaux arts of Lille (1996). The architect’s reputation has also been built upon exuberant experimentation in the area of industrial design and furnishings, including development of a series of now iconic chairs, like the up series, tables and lamps.

In addition to maintaining long-standing relationships with such landmark furniture manufacturers as B&B Italia, Cassina and Vitra international, Gaetano Pesce has launched the New York city companies fish design and open sky to develop and manufacture home design objects, lighting and jewellery for the consumer market. Gaetano Pesce’s work is represented in the permanent collections of leading museums internationally, including the museum of modern art and the metropolitan museum of art in New York city, the San Francisco museum of modern art, the Victoria and Albert museum in London, the musée des arts décoratifs and the centre geoges pompidou in Paris, and the musée des arts décoratifs and the centre canadien d’architecture in Montréal. In 1996 he was honoured with a career retrospective at the centre geoges pompidou in Paris.
