Australian brand Schiavello have opened a new showroom in central Dubai. The showroom is located in Dubai Design District (d3).

Established in the 1960’s by Tony and Joe Schiavello, the brand has steadily refined its approach and grown across Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia and China, with manufacturing facilities and showrooms across major cities in four countries. A commitment to both distributing the best in Australian and international design has seen Schiavello create a design studio to lead their own design and manufacturing direction, and open a world-class 807,293 sqft manufacturing facility in Melbourne in 2005.

“Schiavello’s company culture of ‘anything is possible’ is driven throughout the business; from product research and development to project delivery and customer service. Achieving true vertical integration gives Schiavello the ability to control every element of production, exceptional flexibility and ensure prompt delivery. Today, we continue to invest in ongoing research and development of knowledge to consider how we can best support our customers’ often unknown future needs. We pursue thoughtful design-based solutions to solve problems across a wide range of needs and desires. Of prime importance is emphasising the new skills and products needed to cater to the changing needs of our markets,” says Peter Schiavello, managing director, Schiavello Group.

“The opening of the new showroom in d3 is a symbol of Schiavello’s dedication to the MENA markets and will continue to be a gateway for unique Australian and international designs to the UAE,” he adds.

Dedicated to developing intelligent, inspiring and resilient solutions for the office, the home and public spaces, Schiavello has developed a full range of world-class flexible furniture solutions. Working with Australian and international designers, the collection on display showcases Schiavello’s approach to enhancing collaboration, concentration and health in the workplace and living spaces.

Reflective of the brand’s dedication to wellbeing, Schiavello’s innovative office solutions aim to boost productivity and autonomy. Recent product launches include Krossi, a new sit-to-stand workstation system that allows movement from a seated to an upright position, and Focus, a series of soft barriers and booths that encourages individual work, providing acoustic absorption and privacy for those who need it. Schiavello’s latest product release, Toku, evokes a sense of community and considers modern day workers – millennials and beyond – who crave collaborative and interactive spaces and furniture.

“We’re a people business. This means that we are continually seeking ways to help our clients by adding value to their activities, on both a personal and an organisational level,” states Raffaele Tigani, director – general manager of Schiavello International.
