The studio OPERA was founded in 1990.
Mario Dell’Orto, Emanuela Garbin, Enrico Cattaneo, founded the studio in order to combine their different professional experiences, matured in the same operational environment. The common denominator was the language affinity, which established the objectives geared to provide answers to the complex problems of the sector in a complete and specialist manner.
The studio is active in a number of areas that range from the operations to identify the development strategies, to the study of communication, industrial design, the plans or restructuring projects for showrooms and sales points.
For the companies, the consulting can include specific requirements or art direction in the more general sense, where it is possible to identify an organizational and synergetic route that can permit the coincidence of the various initiatives to provide better identification of the specific brand on the market.
In the area of design, the Studio has designed and continues to design models of the various product types. Armchairs, settees, furniture, beds and furnishing accessories that carry the name OPERA DESIGN have been accepted by prestigious companies and are now part of their production. Several models have also won prizes during exhibitions and competitions in both Italy and abroad.
For exhibitions and showrooms, the studio is responsible for the design and the restructuring programs, identifying the intervention strategies and defining the image and the communication. The project continues through a program of maintenance or growth of the sales point through initiatives, promotions and events.
The Studio therefore develops a synergetic activity produced by the interconnection between the individual operative specializations, and has the possibility of tackling with a much broader outlook the problems facing this sector in the light of the enormous transformation and mutation
