Design, innovation, constant research into new forms and materials to create unique products.
Casamania was founded in 1984. In those years were born the first collections signed by Baldanzi&Novelli addressed to the home world: bookcase and systems are the heart of the company production.
In 1999 Elis Doimo became the head of the company, she gave a significant turning point to Casamania’s collection involving architect and designers in the making of new kind of products thereby enlarging their markets. From 2004 it starts first collaborations with Giulio Iacchetti, Luca Nichetto, Fabio Novembre, Karim Rashid, Josh Owen: begins a new phase for the company, characterized by the use of plastic and researched and provocative forms. In 2009 Casamania’s production is booming. At the same, it chooses to abandon the use of plastic and to devote more to the research of product lines which express themselves through pure materials: wood, leather, metal, tissue. Start first international collaborations with talents like Sam Baron, GamFratesi, Maarten De Ceulaer, Harry&Camila.
In 2011 the corporate consistency, in the expression of a new vision of the interior decoration, strongly affirms itself. In the collection there are products which mark a definite style, a clear philosophy and a strong personality. Benjamin Hubert, Pudelskern, Alain Gilles, Tobias Juretzek become part of Casamania’s designers. The aspect of the craftsmanship of the products become a hallmark, recognizable and distinctive of the company. In September 2012, Casamania opens its first showroom in New York. 2013 is the year in which the company became echoes of Italian creativity in the world: news of this year mainly carry the signature of italian designers: Odoardo Fioravanti, GamFratesi, LucidiPevere, Ilaria Marelli, Luca Nichetto.
In 2014, after thirty years of company history, Casamania renews the collaboration with the designers which helped the company to achieve a worldwide undisputed prestige. At Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2015, Casamania presents two new products designed by Giulio Iacchetti and Marc Thorpe and also a new range of product implementations from the past collections. In 2016, Casamania presents, at Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2016, a collection dedicated to the office, the contract and the residential.
