Profile – Sitia

About Sitia

— History and innovation
of a 100% made in Italy passion

Sitia is a brand founded in 2002. It is specialized in the creation of seats for contract spaces with a focus on “made in Italy” quality chairs. Sitia is an evolved brand thanks to a deep sartorial knowledge on avant-garde technologies, certified methodologies and innovative structural researches, combined with craftsmanship passion and maximum attention to details.
Every Sitia product reflects the value of manufacturing process, research of refined materials and international experience in the furniture sector. Since 2015 the creative direction of the brand has been entrusted to the creative agency of MM Company.

— We call it “the human contract”: handmade by humans for humans

In 2016 Sitia presented a new business concept called “the human contract”. A new interior concept which responds to the changing needs of contemporary living, opening the way to adaptable furniture collections which satisfy this new request of “humanity” even in business contexts.
Totally customizable items are designed by people for people, promoting a contract idea, inspired by new professional human needs in order to satisfy the needs of everyone thanks to a wide range of materials, variants and prestigious finishes.

— Made to measure. An infinite world beyond the catalogue

The brand explores new interior design and functionality concepts which respond to changing needs of the contemporary living. Working and residential spaces need adaptable furniture collections which satisfy this new request of “humanity”. Sitia offers a wide range of products which satisfy these needs. The brand takes advantage of an internal interior design team that studies in project details to find out better construction solutions even from a technical point of view. This allows customers to request changes on standard products – product type, dimensions, materials, finishes – or evaluate together with the company the realization of completely customized items, for which a prototype can be made.

Human made in Sitia

From initial conception to production, Sitia makes entirely handmade products, made in Italy and favouring a short local supply chain in the Veneto region. Each production process is supervised in every single detail thanks to more than 50 years’ experience in the production of chairs. Moreover, the company has an internal production laboratory that allows total customization in its creations, changing fabrics, sizes, materials and finishes. Technological innovation, technical skills, quality and a strong sense of aesthetics affirm the authenticity of Sitia creations.

Dear Giovanna,
I just want to inform you that the chairs arrived today.
After unpacking them (which took some time since they where packed very carefully) I checked the chairs (I signed the transport document “with reserve”). The chairs are ok.
More than this, they are wonderful. I am delighted about the design, the quality and how wonderful they look in my dining room.
Thank you for the great service. I will recommend your products in my company and to my friends J

Dear Giovanna, Dear Emanuel,
We received yesterday our office chair. This is perfect matching color with my office.
Black or white is a perfect office chair: very good quality, perfect handmanscraft, no daubts.
Looking forward to see you early 2019 for the interior of our houses…one is soon ready, the other two late next year.
Ariane and I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Healthy and Happy NEW YEAR.
A prosperous 2019.

Emanuel,
Good evening, I hope you are keeping well?
A note of sincere thanks and appreciation for extending the same price range for this new order with ourselves, Julia has pointed out the price bands vary per product, we hadn’t picked up on this hence believed that the G fabric was in a lower price band to H.
We are really excited to have gotten this order through with our client and cannot wait to get it showcased by a professional photographer so that we have a local project by Sitia that we can promote locally here.
Thank you once again and we are excited for your additional items in your portfolio to launch in 2019.
We greatly appreciate your support.
Kind Regards
Michelle L. from Dublin – IRELAND

Hi Julia,
I am very well thanks a million and hope you are too!?
This interior architect is currently working on this project as we speak and said she will be in touch soon with the furniture schedule.
Fingers crossed we will get them over the line now!
PS: Look at the images of this gorgeous Gingko Chair from another project we just recently installed with the same Architect Firm!
This is a temporary boardroom table with them at the minute so when the final one arrives will send you over some more images… but I genuinely LOVE this chair!
Will be in touch soon and thank you for all of your help and quality of products
