CEADESIGN made its debut in the field of bathroom design and technological development in 1984, initially in the plumbing and heating sector and, later, with production of design tapware for homes. The company’s evolution is based on the culture of steel, the material best represented by the CEA brand, a combination of innovation and product quality, sustainability and production efficiency. The two founding partners are a husband and wife team: Natalino Malasorti, a farsighted visionary entrepreneur and the artistic director, designer and technician for CEA products, and Roberta Bertacco, manager responsible for the commercial growth of the company and the brand. They have, passionately and with dedication, ensured the internationalisation of CEA and its leadership on the panorama of design tapware.
Its production, fully Made in Italy, takes shape in the Pianezze facility plant, while most of the company creative production can be appreciated in the showroom located in Milan, in the Brera district. Cea collections are elegant, pleasant to the touch and the eye, able to combine new generation technologies with an attention to design that is also confirmed by the numerous collaborations with designers of the Italian excellence and by the many awards won, such as the Archiproducts Design Awards with the Regolo 02 mixer in 2017, the Abaco modular bathroom system in 2018, the Ariachiara ceiling fan in 2019 and the towel warmer Equilibrio 44 in 2020.
Gessi's "Made in Italy" bathroom products and accessories are manufactured in harmony with the utmost respect for the environment and the user, creating a new awareness and appreciation of bathroom design, and focusing upon the objects' charm and elegance, as well as their ethical content.
All production processes in Ceadesign have a low-impact on the environment and are non-polluting, since the company does not use substances that are harmful for the health and the environment. Ceadesign invested on sustainability and environment already during the ‘80s, when consciousness about alternative energies was only at its start. Cea took the opposite direction, focusing since the beginning on sustainable development and taking on the responsibility to safeguard the planet and the future generations, because “development” means bringing on the market recyclable products that instead of adding up new things, are destined to be used forever, even in utterly different contexts. All products by Ceadesign are recyclable: what is today a tap could be used as a handle tomorrow, or a hardware and live on.
