88 years of history
The history of Olivieri is the history of a family that since 1929 is able to express trend at its best and how to live your home, previously only in Italy and now worldwide.
Four generations have lived. The founder, Gregorio Olivieri, year 1908, he was nine years when he started to create the first wooden objects, being amazed by the beauty of the material. In a short time, he understood that his passion was connected to the furniture world. In 1929 opened his first laboratory, that in few years became a wooden factory with 120 employees recognized all over in Italy. In 1949, at 13 years of age, his son, Tullio, started to work close to his father. In the years after it was Tullio to become the main brain of the transformation from a wooden factory to an industry . He proved to be a brilliant innovator and devised new wood processing methods never seen before, achieving within his twenty-fifth birthday 9 patents for machinery woodworking. In a short time sale network widened very much and in 1967, together with his wife Teresa, started to build a brand new factory. Revolutionary for its time.
In the mid 80s there was another brilliant idea of Tullio Olivieri: the discovery and the beginning of a collaboration with a young architect early in his career: Giuseppe Bavuso. What followed was a wonderful period of growth. After the death of Tullio, the company passed to children Cinzia and Marco and Enrica. Under their direction, besides Giuseppe Bavuso, they began other collaborations with prestigious Italian furniture designers, internationally renowned architects such as Carlo Colombo, Giuseppe Viganò, Enrico Cesana, Leone & Mazzari. While Marco is dedicated mainly to the organization and production, starting to specialize in contract projects, Cinzia follows the Italian sale network and opens the first international markets, she demonstrates a profound ability to grasp the needs of the market, anticipating and re-interpreting trends of living.
After a corporate restructuring, currently the members are Marco and Enrica, who respectively hold the positions of general and administrative direction. While the sales management and marketing are entrusted to their nephew, Michele Sartini, who very young and after a training course abroad, for ten years he was dedicated to the development of international markets, and in 2014 he manages the entire sales network and marketing. Along with Marco Olivieri form the right mix of experience and dynamism, creative component and technical, sales and production. By their intuition was born in 2014 the VERY WOOD project. A project in which the corporate image and the new collections are of high standard and in which all the company’s values are well expressed. Today Olivieri brand is appreciated in more than 50 countries worldwide, and in February 2014 was inaugurated the first corporate flagship in Milan, in via Solferino, Brera.

The honeycomb ply
Olivieri is differentiated in the market for high-quality materials that characterize their collections. The finest materials, the most used, and of which we can be among the Italian leaders, is certainly the honeycomb ply. Olivieri fact is one of the few companies remaining in Italy which is different for the production of your system cabinets (360 degrees) and supporting side system (Wally) to be fully realized in honeycomb ply (frame and doors).
For those not in the industry, we explain what is the honeycomb ply? The honeycomb ply is a panel with internal honeycomb structure, and a perimeter frame 7cm in solid grade fir. The closing panels are in MDF of 0,4cm or 0,6cm thick; which they will then be laminated or veneered.
Honeycomb ply advantages
- better resistance to the weight;
- extremely light weight, useful for transport, assembly, movement or removal;
- the hardware is fixed on solid fir (grade material), then the hinges will have superior strength and the furniture would have a significantly longer duration;
- better moisture resistance, since the “breathes” material;
- produced exclusively in Italy.
The philosophy of Olivieri has always favored the careful choice of materials and technological innovation, thus making the coexistence of craftsmanship values belonging to the most authentic tradition of furniture, with the current production requirements. Our collections have always been characterized by a strong component: the typical handcrafted details of our carpentry, which make our unique collections and high level.
The company has always maintained a special attention to the needs of the design. Our interior joinery allows us well to industrial production, to work on the project with 360° customization.
