Thanks to our portfolio of high-end Brands and our roster of world-class designers, Design Holding is also a beacon for attracting talent. Our Brands are not only home to some of the most beloved and trend defining designers, but we are also supporting the next generation of creatives.
Our Brands each rely on carefully selected suppliers’ networks that enable them to retain critical phases in-house and ensure the highest level of quality. To manage this complexity, supply chains are managed directly by Brands.
Our Global Footprint
Our global footprint gives us a unique platform and we are committed to using this to spread design consciousness, to inspire future talent and to share our belief that beauty can, and should always be, sustainable.
Our Contract Projects
The Contract Division enables synergies and team working among the Brands preserving their uniqueness and providing considerable added value to the overall quality of high-end contract projects, operating in premium segments of different sectors.
Purpose & Values
Design Holding’s mission is to spread beauty and design culture around the world. At Design Holding, we commit to this aim and pursue this common ethos while preserving each Brand’s identity and design DNA. While acting in different domains of high-end design, across different geographies, each Brand in our Group incorporates this mission with dedication in their operations.
Beauty, craftmanship, quality and sustainability are fundamental to our collective creed. Supporting heritage is another shared priority with each member of our Group nurturing design talent, engaging in scientific research and fostering pioneering partnerships to preserve iconic design legacies for the benefit of future generations.
Ambition & Commitment
We lead our Brands by inspiring them, recognising their achievements, providing them with direction, sharing best practices, and setting benchmarks and expectations, all while respecting their core heritage and identities. We are rooted in our heritage but are also decidedly avant-garde and focused on the future through innovation.
We want our Brands to focus on what they do best: reflecting the state of the world by setting and anticipating relevant consumer trends through innovation. We want them to design beautiful things and transform spaces into beautiful locations – both in the home and beyond (gardens, offices, hotels, public buildings, and much more) – through a wide range of unmatched global services and offerings. Ultimately, we want them to enhance daily lives through functionality, comfort, and inspiration. We are both a stimulus to our Brands and a curator that gives them a common purpose and common values.
