We design

  • We design

First established in 1978, Elmar today is a dynamic brand whose identity is internationally recognized. Our passion is to design, create and market furniture of distinction for kitchen and bathroom environments. In a market where materials, know-how and the search for beauty and quality are in constant evolution, we have always welcomed every-day challenges and offered innovative and valuable options to all market segments. Our tradition to cooperate with architects and designers ensures a range of products that are able to blend with any architectonic style and spacial intervention. Specifically, giving shape to the Company’s potential and forty-year expertise, C+S Architect firm created @HOME SYSTEM, that translates Italian lifestyle in a living space. Balanced between tradition and innovation, it is rich in exclusive and customisable solutions. By working with Carlo Cappai and Maria Alessandra’s firm, thanks to their peculiar sensitivity to the use of materials, technology and light, we shifted the focus from the architectonic elements to the system of relations that link it with the surrounding space, thus designing and creating a new system able to re-think spaces through a series of new relations within home environments. @HOME SYSTEM transforms the kitchen from functional machine to living space, extending its boundaries to the whole space, creating the right ambiance and encouraging the relationship between the space and the people living in it, to make them feel comfortable, at home.

After winning international design contests, C+S works at an international level on the whole project, from the landscape to the urban project, architecture and interior design, for public and private customers.
