Arlexitalia was born in 1993, close to Venice, under the sign of leo. the name comes from harlequin, a famous character of the Venice carnival, who wears clothes made up of a lot of small coloured pieces. the idea was of realizing coloured bathroom furniture, because in the nineties furniture was just white or wood. Mariluccia Baccin, the founder, comes from the fashion world, where collections are realized with fine clothes and many colours, so why not transferring those colours also to the bathroom world?
It’s the birth of the new collection, India red, english green, silver, turquoise, provence yellow. this absolute news is proposed at cersaie fair in bologna and it’s an immediate success.
Orders come from Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Russia, Turkey, Austria, France. Colours are matched with up & down collection, a revolutionary model with a round shape, designed by arch. bertoncini. Mariluccia decides to buy immediately the rights of this project and to introduce this collection to the media. We still produce this model that was born and developed in arlex and has been imitated by many italian companies. our up & down still distinguish itself from imitations for its originality and quality, features recognized in many countries worldwide.
Another collection born in 1993 is called Tiepolo, made of cherry wood, with legs and mirror in murano glass with coordinated accessories.
The company’s always been very connected to its venetian roots and all products are realized with venetian raw materials.
