Design Ready by Donati

Donati is dedicated to manufacturing for the world’s best furniture brands. Delivering high quality at competitive cost, we are specialised in making both complex technical parts as well as complete chairs. Design Ready is a new partnership model conceived to open up new business potentials for our clients.

Design Ready products are concepts for office and general seating developed by Donati together with international designers and then brought to market by our industry clients. Design Ready products enable them to quickly and inexpensively expand their portfolio with technical seating such as office and studio chairs, conference or executive chairs.

With design being pre-defined and engineering well advanced, our industry clients simply need to specify their individual needs of functionality and design detail. We will then finalize and deliver a complete product in a short time. This is why we call these products Design Ready by Donati.
