Vittorio Bonacina Furniture

Italian

In the 1950s, Italian furniture producer Bonacina was passed from founder Giovanni Bonacina to his son, Vittorio Bonacina. Vittorio had a finger on the pulse of modern furniture design and moved Bonacina forward through collaborations with acclaimed mid-century creators like Gio Ponti, Renzo Mongiardino, Gae Aulenti, Joe Colombo and Franco Albini. Albini’s Margherita chair endures as one of Bonacina’s most iconic designs.

For more than 130 years, Bonacina has fostered the fine art of rattan weaving. The company’s vast collection of alluring furniture pieces was developed under four generations of the Bonacina family. Bonacina is now leading a rattan resurgence with its line of beautiful and stylish chairs, including lounge chairs and armchairs.

Bonacina was founded in 1889 by Giovanni in the renowned Italian furniture-making region of Brianza. He drew on the area’s history of basketry, using local cane and reed, in addition to Southeast Asian rattan, to weave furniture. Every piece of Bonacina furniture was and continues to be handmade.

Vittorio’s son, Mario Bonacina, helmed the company in the 1980s. Mario embarked on a project to release updated versions of some of Bonacina’s historical pieces. He continued working with modern designers and encouraged a company ethos of environmental sustainability.

Mario’s son, Elia Bonacina, joined the company in 2012. In 2013, Elia designed the Eris rattan lighting fixture, bringing a fresh perspective to the company's catalogue. In 2015, he acquired the Italian furniture brand Pierantonio Bonacina, which was started by another Bonacina family branch, and established a joint venture named Bonacina1889 s.r.l.

Bonacina’s exceptional designs have earned the company accolades at international exhibitions, including top prizes at the Triennale Milano and multiple Compasso d’Oro awards. Today, Bonacina retains the use of traditional materials and techniques while looking to the future. Most recently, it expanded into the outdoor furniture market.
