Porro was born in Brianza, the traditional Italian cradle of quality furniture production. Since 1935, the Porro family has been running a company that created a furnishing philosophy that combines the artisan tradition of the time and the most advanced production and computerization technologies of today. The culture of furniture as a family heritage, together with the diktats that guide production, that is formal cleanliness, geometry of shapes and functionality, have allowed Porro to conquer a large space on the international market on tiptoe.
A heritage that has always been shared with some of the most important Italian and international designers, such as Piero Lissoni, the company’s art director since 1989, Jean Marie Massaud, Christophe Pillet, Piergiorgio Cazzaniga, Ferruccio Laviani, Decoma Design, Elisa Ossino, Werner Aisslinger and Wolfgang Tolk, who with their collaboration have contributed to making Porro collections at the forefront of the furniture sector.
GEROSA DESIGN, owner of the LIVE DESIGN website, is an Italian and international reference point (Switzerland, European Union, United States, Asia…) for the entire collection of Porro products.
