The Porada company was founded in 1960 by Luigi Allievi with the help of his four children with the intention of continuing the production of chairs, started in 1948, and extending it to other sectors.
The current collection has been maintained thanks to two generations that have united entrepreneurial capacity with the values of an ancient local craft. The first step towards the production of accessories coincides with the collaboration with the architects Alberio and Cerbaro, and M.Perego, from which the “Linea 91” and the “Hoppo” were born. The Porada complement has always been based on the use of the massif, which continues today, combined with other materials, such as steel, glass and plastic. This new experimentation begins with the collaboration of T. Colzani, who among the most important pieces developed the “Cuccagna” system – a system of modular columns for each home or installation environment.
For Porada, collaboration with designers such as Zappa & Marconato, Seveso & Trezzi and Gottein, has become more important and lead to the production of design and highly-functional articles.
The Porada collection is large and varied, made up of numerous decoration accessories developed in collaboration with designers such as Marconato and Zappa, Carlo Ballabio, Staffan Tollgard, Patrick Jouin, David Dolcini, Emmanuel Gallina, Stefano Bigi, Gino Carollo, Tarcisio Colzani, Studio Opera , Dainelli Sudio and Studio Buratti.
