The history of Apulia Desing had deep and firm root like the one of an old oak anchor at its ground.
Vitantonio Coletta is a young apulian designer. In his childhood he play more with the wood shaving than the hot wheels because he spent his summers with the granfather a traditional carpenter. There Vitantonio grow found in all the characteristic of the wood like color and property. There he find out that, like in a marriage, if you want work well with wood you need to be compliant and give it some credit and not argue with it too much at least time to time.
So he dedicated all his years of study to become a “tecnologo del legno” (a wood expert). For that he had to leave his beloved city and go at the illustrious University of Padua, because he want to be sure to know any secret of the wood. Apulia Design is born from his dream and ideas but is not a lone wolf project, is the project of a very harmonious team.
The first member of this team, after Vitantonio, is Franco Iacobazzi a important friend of Vitantonio’s granpa and a great carpenter as he. The next one is Vito Carangelo, a young carpenter and a childhood friend of Vitantonio because the new generation need to prove their value to the old one. Last, but not less important, we have Saverio Fasulo, an architect who love at first sight the project and jump aboard. Therefor, for always do and have high quality products Apulia Design collab with other great artisan high qualified so anyone can do what they do better.
This great team spent his days and night trying new and avant-gard technic, but without forgot the importance of the nature and ambient. They are a very green and attentive to the environment.
Their ideas can be look a little crazy but their product are very heavy-duty and strange form evoke the idea of:

All their product are inspired by the traditional culture of the country, in particularly the forgotten one and the medieval one.
