For the 50th anniversary of UniFor, a leading company that develops and creates solutions for the contemporary space-office, this volume covers 5 key decades in the history of Italian design.

Through an analysis of case studies, this book illustrates the peculiarity of UniFor, highlighting the absolute singularity of their work method. It recreates the identity through key moments, from the collaboration with the most prestigious architects – like Michele De Lucchi, Foster + Partners, Jean Nouvel, Renzo Piano, Aldo Rossi, Álvaro Siza, just to mention a few – to communication strategies, with the graphic designer Pierluigi Cerri unifying the message through a coordinated image and display system (from showrooms to fair stands) that exemplifies, in 3D space, the notions of order, measure, functional elegance and innovation.

Specialising in major projects, an international vocation and a close relationship with the most prestigious architecture studios characterize the work of UniFor that since its founding (1969) is a factory-workshop open to the best creative talents.

In fact, UniFor designs custom-made furniture systems, in the name of sophisticated quality. A task that entails working on materials, their durability, and their aesthetic, technical and functional performance, to create complex and complete environments.UniFor was born with a precise vocation: an interior landscape design that interprets and translates into reality the indications and needs of today’s clients and architects.
