An agreement was reached announcing an important strategic alliance within the design industry.
Boffi, the high-end brand for kitchens and bathrooms, has acquired 100% of De Padova, worldwide iconic furniture design company. Luca De Padova acquires 7.5% of Boffi and therefore becomes its second main shareholder.
This important step will see to the two brands maintaining their own different identities, united by the same shared aim of creating a platform of excellence for the design industry which is now ever more integrated and interlinked for all the living areas: from bathrooms to beds and storage systems, kitchens to upholstered products and complementary items.
Boffi and De Padova will collaborate together to further develop the common process of internationalization in order to sustain the Italian “know how” by forming a stronger unity and increasing involvement in both private and contract sectors.
Luca De Padova is now President of De Padova and has become the Vice President of Boffi, officially entering the board of directors. With his new position in Boffi, he will contribute to the development of the group thanks to his knowledge and experience within the interiors industry.
Roberto Gavazzi is now CEO of Boffi and De Padova, ensuring operational guidance for both companies.
Boffi and De Padova are the extraordinary combination of two heritage brands which integrate perfectly thanks to their business histories, contribution to the development of Italian design, and strong brand image as market leaders.
Roberto Gavazzi: “Over the past few years I had been courting Luca, convinced that the union of our two companies would create something extraordinary in terms of quality standards and product range, across a worldwide network of dedicated showrooms with each company’s strong brand identities and overall product quality helping both companies grow internationally. The alliance with De Padova is an important example of how two Italian companies are able to take on new global challenges together by creating an ambitious project of growth in a stable balance of resources and skills”.
Luca De Padova: "The union with Boffi will further increase growth and development for De Padova worldwide within the design industry where Italy is considered as market leader. Thanks to a partner with a strong distribution network we will have higher visibility with new exhibiting spaces which are ever more difficult to achieve. I also believe in synergies on larger projects and in the possibility of creating and opening stores together that will represent both companies at their best. I always found myself in agreement with Roberto on business strategies and on the common vision of being an entrepreneur. Product taste, the search for a cohesive industrial project, passion and desire to overcome difficulties, make us very close. I am sure that we will achieve very ambitious goals.”
In the definition of the agreement Boffi was assisted by the Studio Ferrari_ Pedeferri, De Padova by the Studio Bonelli Erede Pappalardo.
