Aldo Ciabatti, from Arezzo, born in 1939 or the multifaceted vision and existence of one of the most interesting contemporary designers. His biography is in fact the mirror of what today allows Made in Italy to remain the main factor of competitiveness: dynamism and a vision consistent with objectives and goals where profit is not the only decisive component.
Graduated in 1956 from the Margaritone Institute in Arezzo, he enhances his technical preparation with marketing studies that accentuate his ability to grasp market demands and trends, but at the same time to become an original interpreter of them, always offering simple solutions oriented towards functionality and comfort.
His soul as a creator and designer is associated with a successful entrepreneurial activity that certifies one of the elements that most characterize his presence on the market: the projects he works on are never attempts but concrete solutions for everyday life that does not renounce quality. of design.
There are really numerous companies to which the name of Ciabatti can be linked: Dress, Stilgamma and Emu are just a few. All active and specialized companies in the interior and exterior furniture sector.
Stilgamma in particular, is the first company that gives life together with his brother. It produces armchairs and allows Ciabatti to adopt and adopt its own production techniques that will allow for lighter and less cumbersome armchairs.
Emu, the challenge of revival
Emu is instead the challenge of revival. Taken over together with a partner, thanks to the graft of creativity and entrepreneurial know-how, today it represents one of the most established brands in the outdoor furniture sector.
Today Aldo Ciabatti is all this but he is also a painter. His original artistic vocation, given that he was professionally born as a goldsmith chiseller, re-emerges in his current pictorial passion which has become a predominant component of his activity, so much so that he made, in the 2009, a catalog of 650 works between paintings and drawings.
The present is therefore characterized, as always, by the continuous search for new goals and by the ambition for knowledge that constitutes the most powerful spring of all the great visionaries.
All of this is visible in the creations by Ciabatti, which makes it inevitable that even a furnishing accessory is not limited to being such, but ends up being a component, albeit essential, of an artistic journey.
