The center borns in 2004 and continue the work that Centro Bioedile and Tupa started in the 80's, the former in the field of organic materials for architecture, the last in the furniture division. Materiavera's mission is to design choosing shapes able to bring beauty and freshness in our world, by using natural materials, in respect of man, environment, nature. Living, thinking, designing in a sustainable way means being aware that everyone of us and any our choice is linked to the rest of the universe that surrounds us and to whom we belong.
