Metalco is a company internationally known for its production of street furniture and pods. Founded in 1984 from the encounter of two young entrepreneurs, the partnership started its activity with a small production of modular fences, seating, benches, litter bins and cycle racks, characterised by innovative design and audacious colours.
During the formative years, the commercial success obtained in Italy and abroad, pushed the firm to a constant search and experimentation in design, materials and in the manufacturing processes: progressively, the range of products increased, with new products arriving including shelters for public transport, barriers, bollards, advertising supports, public illumination, pods and much more.
When the new Millennium began, the market grows and Metalco does too: between 1999 and 2000 a new 25,000 sq.m manufacturing and commercial headquarters opened utilising the most advanced technologies within the sector.
To keep Metalco at the fore front of the industry a technical department and a R&D division was set up, which is constantly committed with the development of new products. Over the years the firm has developed and keeps developing many prestigious collaborations: worldwide famous architects and designers like Antonio Citterio, Pininfarina, Marc Aurel, Alessandro Lenarda and many others, have signed products and collections for Metalco.
Result: Metalco today boasts the broadest existing range of street and outdoor furniture and metallic modular fences, known in over 4.000 cities across 32 Countries.
METALCO. LUXURY CITIES A pay off which holds, in two simple but powerful words, Metalco’s mission: a Firm, a Brand, that does not want to be a part in a war of prices and anonymity, but wants to distinguish its self for the high level of its products and projects and wants to make of each city the first home of all citizens and visitors.
Prestigious, luxury, unique cities.
People not living in the greyness of the global crisis, walking down streets reflecting the general depression like mirrors, but surrounded by the colours, the beauty, the uniqueness and prosperity of their cities.
Streets feeling like corridors of their homes, parks like private gardens, public spaces suitable for welcoming every person as a special guest in their own home.
Citizens not accepting mediocrity, but calling out for their own right of living well, starting from their own houses, to end up in squares, hidden corners, parks, clubs, streets.
Their cities. Their home.
