In celebration of their 90th anniversary, family-owned Italian design company Porro presents Cabinet of Curiosities, a collection of unique “boxes” by renowned Italian and international designers. Founded in 1925 in the Brianza region, Porro stands out for its unique capacity to select, process and interpret wood using the latest advances in technology. It is recognized as a “system tailor” thanks to its storage collections that are designed to adapt to--and enhance--any interior environment.
“La Meda” is the name which the Brianza area carpenters used to call the pile of wood. When thinking about the box for the Porro 90th anniversary, I wanted to recall before the real art of building furnishing units, the need to have wood available to manufacture them. La Meda is the origin, for me, the beginning of production and everything comes later.
