Calia Italia sofas are the outcome of Calia Italia R&D’s creative minds. A new project starts always after an in-depth study of the ongoing trends and a careful analysis of the current market needs.
Calia Italia R&D team can be seen as a little factory of ideas where shapes, colours and details represent an important source of inspiration for the future collections.
From the study to the idea, from the idea to a sketch, and from a sketch to the final designing, a creative and virtuous process leads to the birth of Calia Italia collections. More than 50 new models are created every year and include sofas, modular sofas, armchairs, footstools and sofa beds.
After a first freehand drawing, a second step follows when more realistic images are created to make the initial design more detailed and more helpful.
The following step is to turn the initial selected sketches into a production project: 2D drawings and 3D models are prepared so as to have a 360 degree perspective thus avoiding any possible flaws. During this phase, the scale drawings of the chosen models are sent to the R&D developer who will start working on the first prototype. Once the artisan receives the blessing from both the R&D and the sales team it comes the time to fine-tune the project, defining which versions will be developed and creating the production patterns.
The prototype is then introduced to the market: if the product meets the customers’ approval, the engineering and production processes will begin. The model is now ready to enhance beautiful homes all around the world.
Creativity, innovation but most of all, comfort: Calia Italia sofas are conceived in full compliance with the rules of ergonomics which are based on the perfect ratio between length, height and depth, yet considering the proportion of the human body and its most common postures.
Lastly, Calia Italia R&D team’s work is enriched by a constant activity of updating and research which is vital for the development and the growth of the Company and its creations.
