made in Lando
In 1976 Lando Leopoldo began working in Rossano Veneto, in a small furniture business. Two years later the company "Lando Leopoldo S.n.c." was founded, which then became "Lando S.r.l." in 2000.
The Company's roots are the production of traditional Umbria and Tuscany style furniture, inspired by a careful selection of original pieces from the antique markets, museums and antique shops of Italy. Faithful reproductions of the colours and fascinating vintage style are made, using the same construction methods, the same woods and the same craftsmanship of the past. A very precise style that today is still reflected in "Antiquariato", the Lando collection that continues this combination of art, skill and passion.
In 1998, Lando's story, strongly characterised by the production of traditional furniture, meets modern expression and the company's expert carpentry skills discover the curiosity and creative research of famous designers. This gives rise to the CountryClub collection in 1999, the Gingerbread collection in 2005 designed by Paola Navone and the Nuova Falegnameria collection in 2006 again designed by Paola Navone.
Today Leopoldo is assisted in company management by his sons Andrea and Giacomo, and together they still pursue a specific aim: to promote day after day the idea that beautiful living is, above all, "quality thought".
For more than thirty years Lando has been pursuing quality in all its aspects: quality materials, processes and designs.
A global choice distinguishes the company, this global choice is what they like to call "Quality thought". This expression means that research, experience, passion, and dedication all go into the designing and producing of Lando furniture.
"A specific aim: to promote day after day the idea that beautiful living is, above all, "quality thought"
The company production centre is formed of an internal efficient joiner's workshop, a modern varnishing plant and a shipping department, where 35 highly specialised people work daily to give shape to this way of living, this "Quality thought" that is a part of each creation.
Each piece of furniture immediately conveys this way of living, with excellent quality standards and that exclusive furnishing style that only Lando can design.
3 TIMES PRECIOUS
Territoriality, Materiality, Manuality: these concepts enclose the value of each piece of Lando furniture. Three precious contents which together represent the value and define the unique unmistakeable style of the company.
To design a piece of furniture means combining material and form, without ever forgetting where the material comes from and who the form is dedicated to. Lando is situated in Rossano Veneto and has the soul of the Veneto within itself and each piece of furniture that is made. This is shown by the choice of expressing its creativity through the materials that come from the area: Bassano pottery, wrought iron, glass that is unique to Venice, and, of course, wood, traditional material that the Venetian craftsmen dedicate all their passion and inborn skill to.
Lando chooses only the best quality raw materials, carefully selected to always respect the environment. Like wood, which must be traditional and never come from protected forests, and which must be processed using all the natural thickness as it is the only way to highlight its original depth. Materials that "ask" for man's hand, because they can feel all his love and can open up their souls to him.
It is man's hand that can be seen, even when the furniture is finished, through the selection and precise joins between the pieces of wood, carefully selected and matched one by one. Through the planing, intaglio and inlaying, waxing, water and earth staining through to the shellac: all artistic moments exclusively done by hand, as the material demands and the eye can fully appreciate. Whether it be wood, leather, pottery or iron, it does not matter where the beginning of the story is to tell of its creation, what matters is the "handmade art", because it is the only real definition of craftsmanship.
