Since the first furniture was made in 1960 with architect Leonardo Ferrari, Rossi’s production reflects the relationship between the architectural, urban, archaeological and objective scale. Since 1979 it has opened up to the world of industrial production and high craftsmanship, making furniture and products for use first with Alessi, then with Artemide, DesignTex, Bruno Longoni Atelier of Furniture, Molteni & C | UniFor, Richard-Ginori, and Rosenthal, Up & Up (UpGroup today).
