COVO is a furniture company, born in 1997 from the intuition of its founder Stefano Fragapane. He considers the definition of a businessman to surpass that of a simple product maker, to become a wise producer of “uncommon” items with “emotional design”. Such items respond to a new concept of usability, fulfil their function and, above all, to respond to the human need for excitement. These are unexpected items, whose real meaning pivots on a precise balance between sense and appearance, between shape and function.
Throughout the years COVO’s core strength in upholding aesthetic tradition that combines elegance and simplicity, has become a perfect interpreter. An interpreter that has developed an autonomous and distinctive language marrying tradition, contemporary classicism and avant-garde design. Initially taking inspiration from the Asian rigour of form, COVO gives character to its products while remaining faithful to its origins and progressively enriching them with constant new stimulation from the design world. With its Italian DNA and international roots, COVO directs and manages research with a stoic and sensitive eye. This exploration ranges from skilful use of materials to the shrewd selection of international high-level producers. The fantasy of form and the attention to materials are at the heart of its processes. The final product shines with a fresh, highly personal aesthetic that never sacrifices functionality.
COVO has always embraced a strong identity, collaborating with brilliant well-known and up-and-coming designers, who share its intense expressive character. Its design is a lighthouse to be preserved amid a sea of “no-name” global mass production; its identity is founded on beauty and concreteness, a harmonious union between form and substance. COVO is a brand capable of seduction and capturing the attention of a growing audience, while consolidating its position and reputation in the design world.
