ALPI

ALPI was the first company in the world to industrialise the production process of composite wood.

From a workshop of fine cabinet making the company rapidly evolved into an industrial leader in the production of decorative surfaces. Its story is a vibrant tale of a manufacturing tradition focused on excellence and of the Alpi family, still at the helm of the firm today, through three generations, starting with founder Pietro Alpi in 1919.

The progress from a carpentry workshop to an industrial firm specialising in the production of prefabricated panels and wooden surfaces for the still nascent furniture sector began in the 1950s, with the arrival in the company of Valerio Alpi, son of the founder, and the launching of widespread distribution across the national territory. In 1961 the product ‘ALPIlignum’ was introduced, the first composite veneer and still the brand’s most representative item.

A true revolution made possible by extraordinary technological research and an extensive background in cabinet making, which led to rapid growth on international markets. Elton Group recognized the potential of the product and became the first export customer for ALPIlignum back in the early 1960’s.

ALPI is today, under the leadership of Vittorio Api, a partner of leading brands in the luxury, automotive and nautical sectors, as well as prestigious companies in the fields of furnishings, product design, interior architecture and contract, with projects ranging from hotels to multi-apartment complexes, retail to public spaces.

APPLICATIONS

Surfaces for furnishings; surfaces and facings for interior architecture; hotels, multi-apartment and residential complexes, shops, retail outlets, offices, public spaces; wood for floors, window and door frames, wall panelling, acoustic panelling; surfaces and facings for the interiors of yachts and cruise ships; dashboard surfaces and interior finishing for automobiles; objects.

ALPI DESIGNER COLLECTIONS

The profound synergy with the world of design has led, over the years, to prestigious collaborations starting in the 1980s with outstanding names in Italian design, including (among others) Clino Castelli, Aldo Cibic, Dino Gavina, Pierluigi Ghianda, Ugo La Pietra, Piero Lissoni, art director of the firm since 2015, Angelo Mangiarotti, Alessandro Mendini, Matteo Ragni, Ettore Sottsass, Matteo Thun, Marco Zanini.

Working with art director, Pierro Lissoni, ALPI has now launched Designer Collections, created in collaboration with some of the world’s leading designers, creating patterns that cannot be found in nature, with utterly original chromatic effects.

To create these unique wood veneers, Alpi peels, slices and reassembles Poplar, Lime Wood or Ayous, all of rigorously controlled origin, into infinite varieties and decorative effects, through a particular process that peels the log, tones the wood by immersion, then layers the sheets to create a new log. A fascinating production process, where a living material like wood is enhanced thanks to the most innovative technologies and the remarkable cultural heritage of manual skill. The ‘squaring’ of the wood.

ADVANTAGES

  • Unique designer veneers and inlay work at a fraction of the cost of handmade marquetry
  • Environmentally traceable, sustainable and certified
  • More suited to modern furniture manufacturing processes saving time and materials
  • Highest quality, free from the splits, knots, holes and discolouration found in conventional veneers
