Italian contemporary interiors brand Boffi has opened a new showroom in Melbourne’s Collingwood.
Boffi was established in 1934 as a kitchen manufacturer and expanded to bathrooms in 1950. It has since acquired Italian furniture brand De Padova, furniture and shelving systems brand MA/U Studio and manufacturer of partition systems ADL.
Housed in a former gospel hall, the unique space with its raking pressed metal ceilings and architectural details, exhibits the four distinct brands from the Boffi family.
Boffi Studio Melbourne is the second Australian showroom to open following the establishment of Boffi Studio Sydney in 2013 by Australian interior architect Edwina Withers.
“It is a great privilege for us to display the De Padova and MA/U furniture collections alongside our Boffi range as they complete the story. Boffi, De Padova and MA/U are, indeed, a true marriage of aesthetics and philosophy. The three brands are passionate about absolute quality and longevity paired with innovative, contemporary design thinking. They are a visual complement and it allows us to talk to our clients in a more holistic way,” Withers said.
Boffi De Padova CEO Roberto Gavazzi added, “We are proud to partner with Edwina and launch our second dedicated Boffi Studio in Australia. Through the people I have met during my time in Australia, I can see that Melbourne is a place where design and innovation is deeply understood and so we anticipate a great meeting of creative minds.”
