Building on 50 years of accomplishment in Australia, Schiavello have bolstered their MENA presence with a new showroom in central Dubai. The showroom is located in the new Dubai Design District, near to Downtown Dubai and overlooking the iconic Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world.
The Dubai Design District (D3) is the purpose built centre of the design community in Dubai, enabling our showroom to share its location with all the major design and architect practices in the Middles East. “Delivering projects to the Middle East since the 80’s, this will give us the opportunity to continue collaborating and inviting the A&D community to experience and feel the quality of design we offer.”
Dedicated to developing intelligent, inspiring and resilient solutions for the office, the home and public spaces, Schiavello has developed a full range of world class flexible furniture solutions. Working with Australian and international designers, the collection on display showcases Schiavello’s approach to enhancing collaboration, concentration and health in the workplace and living spaces. Reflective of the brand’s dedication to wellbeing, Schiavello’s innovative office solutions aim to boost productivity and autonomy. Recent product launches include Krossi, a new sit-to-stand workstation system that allows movement from a seated to an upright position, and Focus, a series of soft barriers and booths that encourages individual work, providing acoustic absorption and privacy for those who need it.
Schiavello’s latest product release, Toku, evokes a sense of community and considers modern day workers – Millennials and beyond – who crave collaborative and interactive spaces and furniture. “We’re a people business. This means that we are continually seeking ways to help our clients by adding value to their activities, on both a personal and an organizational level,” explains Raffaele Tigani, Director – General Manager of Schiavello International.
Born in the 1960’s by Peter’s father and uncle, Tony and Joe Schiavello, Schiavello has steadily refined its approach and grown across Australia & New Zealand, South East Asia and China, with manufacturing facilities and showrooms across major cities in four countries. A commitment to both distributing the best in Australian and international design has seen Schiavello create a design studio to lead their own design and manufacturing direction, and open a world-class 75,000 square metre manufacturing facility in Melbourne in 2005. With a state of the art powder coating facility, sophisticated CNC metal plant, tooling capacity supporting plastic injection moulding and electronic assembly, and the ability to create bespoke joinery and high quality upholstery, Schiavello not only produces a world-class collection of products, but also is in an excellent position to offer bespoke solutions.
“Schiavello’s company culture of ‘anything is possible’ is driven throughout the business; from product research and development to project delivery and customer service. Achieving true vertical integration gives Schiavello the ability to control every element of production, exceptional flexibility and ensure prompt delivery. Today, we continue to invest in ongoing research and development of knowledge to consider how we can best support our customers’ often unknown future needs. We pursue thoughtful design-based solutions to solve problems across a wide range of needs and desires. Of prime importance is emphasising the new skills and products needed to cater to the changing needs of our markets.” explains Peter Schiavello. He adds, “The opening of the new showroom is a symbol of Schiavello’s dedication to the MENA markets and will continue to be a gateway for unique Australian and international designs to the UAE”.
