Founded in 1992 by Umberto Gessi, the company began as a small workshop to challenge the industry status quo dominated by historic names.
Armed with a clear vision of change and innovation, the Gessi family has pioneered new, ground-breaking business philosophies, which are superior design and technology, managing to quickly develop into one of the most sophisticated and vertically integrated manufacturing companies in its product category worldwide.
The production facility, the systems, and the entire production process have been designed and manufactured with a special focus on environmental protection and worker safety. Innovative solutions have been adopted to achieve these objectives.
The company’s creative, productive and administrative activities have been organized in a fully integrated manner within a multi-purpose industrial park of over 800,000 m2, which combines modern technology with eco-architecture and landscaping: the Gessi Park.
In 2006, Gessi went on to become a global company, establishing commercial branches in various countries on nearly every continent.
In addition to receiving numerous awards for its innovative product designs, Gessi was appointed Italy’s Superbrand in 2008. That same year, it received the prestigious Red Dot Communication Design Award.
A company’s history is often inextricably linked to the history of the place in which it is located and carries out its activities. In these places, everything begins: ideas, projects, and products. In the case of Gessi, this place is the Gessi Park, a “Dream Factory” designed in every detail to embody the philosophy, history, and identity of Gessi: aesthetic design, innovative technology, excellent quality, functionality, and simplicity. The Park represents the synthesis of all of the company’s founding values, the company’s genuine DNA.
At the heart of the production facility lies structure harmoniously emerging from the surrounding environment. A far cry from a traditional factory, the Gessi production facility skirts the confines between architecture and land art, becoming a feature of the landscape, embedded as a natural sculpture.
Design is integral to the company’s entire production process. It is its heart and soul and the distinguishing element in everything it does, even its architecture. The same aesthetic characteristics of industrial space have been taken into consideration as functional elements. That is, offering employees a pleasant working environment, a source of positive energy and well-being to be enjoyed by all, and a place where work can be carried out in absolute serenity under ideal environmental conditions.
The factory is characterized by spacious, bright and clean environments. Shiny brass is neatly organized in bars on shelves from which it is collected by robots, silent white machinery, and polished floors bustling with the electric carts that are used throughout the facility. A profound cleanliness. An orderliness that makes you forget you’re in a factory.
The Park is self-sufficient with vertically integrated work activities, in which professionalism and various experiences find a common home.
In addition to the heart of the Park, the company’s production activities, its nervous centers are the Styling Office, in which the collections are conceived of and brought to life, and the Research and Development Centre, which transforms the designers’ ideas into iconic.
The enormous showroom is also important; it’s a marvelous place in which visitors can fully appreciate the true Gessi spirit. An indispensable stimulus for both workers and customers.
With entirely “Made in Gessi” production processes, the company represents the most genuine embodiment of the “Made in Italy” philosophy, incorporating Italian beauty, design, and lifestyle into each of its products and distributing them all over the world.
While based on aesthetic research and style, Gessi’s Made in Italy philosophy is mainly focused on the development of exceptional solutions to real problems. The company mission is to make everyday life more pleasant with objects of extraordinary beauty and functionality.
