GIOBAGNARA

Renowned for its elegant creations that convey luxury without ostentation, Giobagnara adheres to the highest standard of Italian design and craftsmanship.  

Launched in 1999, the brand has quickly earned a reputation for expert leather workmanship, and its founder has become a key partner for a large number of interior designers as well as a select group of yacht and private jet designers who rely on his specialised knowledge to realise made-to-measure commissions.

Since its inception, Giobagnara has given birth to masterpieces with any type of leather, ranging from printed calfskin to exotic hides.  Matched in recent years by the introduction of other materials such as marble, wood and metal, offering a series of select finishes of choice.

Having evolved from a family tradition that since 1939 has been active in the research and sale of elegant decorative objects, the workshop’s success is based on a thorough and learned study that combines talent, research and technical know-how.

The entire process is handled with expertise so that every single product is made with meticolous care from the very first steps to the end. A brand that is distinctive for elegantly designed creations that express luxury without ostentation, available in a colour palette of 200 leathers and suede, tanned in Italy and handcrafted to the highest standards using both traditional know-how and leading-edge technology. This approach to tradition and modernity led Giorgio Bagnara to experiment: he constantly pushes technical limits in his quest for objects that are both beautiful and relevant, and in doing so relies on the skills of the company's craftspeople.

THE COLLECTIONS

The collections in the Giobagnara universe are extensive, from small accessories and jewellery to serveware, lighting and furniture.  Any room, yacht, jet or commercial premises can be adorned with exquisite items of luxury in Giobagnara's range of finishes, with bespoke sizes available in many categories to suit individual tastes and interiors.

GIORGIO BAGNARA

Born into a family renowned for cultivating for three generations the art of living, Giorgio Bagnara became passionate about his calling at a very early age. In the late Nineties, after noticing that leather from the fashion industry was not considered enough as material for home accessories, he founded GIOBAGNARA with the goal of applying it to a complete collection.

 

Along with his wife, Vanessa, he decided to move his design studios and workshops in the old docks of the Port of Genoa where, surrounded by the essence and beauty of that location, the company took a significant step forward.

The interior architect and designer Stéphane Parmentier began his career working for Karl Lagerfeld before deciding to devote himself to architecture full time.  Since then, he has created and developed numerous projects for an international clientele, attuned to his style of luxurious simplicity.

Having met Giorgio Bagnara in the aisles of a trade show and enamoured with the beauty and quality of the leathers used by Giobagnara, not to mention the meticulous attention to detail, he regularly contacted the brand to realise custom-made home furnishings.

After building a rapport based on the shared sense of rigour, a quest for excellence and a taste for modern elegance expressed through sleek design, a collaboration followed.

Since, Stéphane Parmentier has designed a number of new creations, from boxes, cases, accessories, and furniture pieces.

MATERIALS

Giobagnara's creations are crafted from the finest leathers, marble, wood and metal to create pieces that are enriched by the stories these natural materials can tell, and the personality they convey.

LEATHER

The sensual strength of leather enhances items used and enjoyed on a daily basis.  The choice is wide and goes from the most traditional leathers such as calfskin, enriched by the possibility to choose from many elegant textures, up to precious exotic ones like real shagreen and crocodile.

MARBLE

Together with a natural material such as leather, marble is the ideal match.  Speaking to a refined taste and uniting heritage and modernity, marble is versatile, tells stories and is culturally relevant.

The different colours and textures provide objects with a unique profile.

METAL

Being characterised by elegance and cleanliness, its juxtaposition with the leather and marble brings contrasting yet harmonious results.

With four finishes available as standard, Giobagnara reaches the most balanced and well-matched schemes.
