Misuraemme, a continuously developing well-known brand

The history of MisuraEmme started in the early years of the last century by Giovanni the father of Giuseppe and Luigi Mascheroni, who in 1902 founded the base of the company in Mariano Comense in the heart of the prolific district of furniture Brianza, well known for its excellent manufacturing.

Today the establishment has a surface of 35.000 mq. Passed on by generations, the know-how of MisuraEmme is the result of consolidated knowledge over time and loyalty to strong and imperative values. 100% made in Italy, designed by famous architects and realised making use of the artisan culture of professionals of the Brianza area. The products of MisuraEmme embody the wish to combine tradition with innovation.

Today the company is not only capable of proposing furniture characterised by a high level of personalisations and one on-one designs with the client, but also to export these values, designing solutions in tune with different International requirements.

In 1970 became a modern industry called MisuraEmme with a new generation led by the late Arch. Tiziana Mascheroni. As head of the company Dott.ssa Daniela Mascheroni and Ing. Gianni Borgonovo took over, both had already been fullfiling important roles for years, in collaboration with Federica Mascheroni while Mrs Marisa Mascheroni is the President of the company. At the moment also the third generation is working in the company.

The family's intuition and business know-how is combined with the collaboration of the best designers in the business.

During the problematic period for Italian design in the '60's and '70's, in Italy companies that produce furniture with an ample range of proposals distinguish themselves in such a way that they attract the interest of the international culture within the design sector which, immediately after the war, mainly looked at the experience of the Nordic Countries.

The reduced dimension of the company, the flexibility, the capacity and the involvement of new entrepreneurs together with a group of capable and talented designers are the base of our collections.
