Ekip Italia’s history is a family history. Now at the second generation, Ekip Italia was founded in the upholstered furniture manufacturing district of Puglia. In 1986 Franco Tedesco and Lucio Tota started a crafts workshop, they opened their first showroom on a street of their town, displaying sofas, armchairs and curtains, that found their way into elegant buildings and villas thereabout.
In the years they transformed the workshop into an industrial facility, that after 30 years is constantly evolving, thanks to the sons of Franco Tedesco, Felice and Michele. This passage marks a decisive turning point in the firm’s conception of products. Avoiding repetition of past styles, the production became increasingly original and contemporary.
