Meda is the world capital of design and for this reason it is one of the most important cities in the world.

In 1974 our founders decided to build the pillars of our society in a territory which, in our sector, is a legend: the town of Meda.

The city of Meda is quoted in texts of design, it is the destination of design-addicts from all over the world and it has seen the creation of some of the major innovations in our sector.

In Italy, unlike other nations where design was already important during the 1930s and 40s, in the 50s architects and designers discovered the furniture industry thanks to the large industries that reconverted war production into civil production. Meda became the protagonist of a new creative and economic culture which was able to blend elegance, form and style, re-modelling it to meet the needs of modern families. 

We at BertO have been handed an important inheritance, a historical challenge and the enthusiasm which comes straight from our founders who chose to create our society right here in the capital of Italian design throughout the world. Meda.
