Sergio Cattaneo

Born in 1951, profession: Dreamer.
I was born during the early 50s in Bovisio Masciago, a traditional village of Brianza, and grew up surrounded by the sawdust of the family’s carpentry workshop, opened by my grandfather Vincenzo at the beginning of the century.
I studied and worked, at school I was the first of the class, but didn’t really fit in. So I dropped out and became an insatiable autodidact.
Meanwhile I got more and more experienced in my job, learning all the steps of the creation of custom-made furniture. But I wasn’t satisfied, I wasn’t fullfilled.
The crucial event:
Como, the 70s: I was at a furniture delivery for an entire flat on the 7th floor, but there was no lift in the building. It was that terrible effort that implanted the seed of an idea in my mind which would become a permanent thought.
I thus began to imagine a different way to make furniture. Lightness, simplicity in producing, carrying and installing. I imagined cages, empty cages instead of heavy closed units. Perhaps to be assembled with a “clac” …
Russia, development of an idea:
But there’s a time for everything and it would take many years before the idea in my mind could see its fulfilment.
My love for Dostoevsky led me to start a Russian class where I met Albert, my teacher and future business partner. I left work in the family’s company and, with Albert, we founded “Seral”. We would travel up and down from Moscow to Siberia designing and realizing woodworking machinery.
And then, everything had come full circle
At that point my knowledge of the whole world of furniture, from the choice of the wood panel to the final installation, from the handcrafted production to the industrial one, was complete.
It was time to concentrate on the cages project. Thus I invested all my time, and my money too, in the realization of the new project. I worked hard. Sketches, Drawings, tests, sleepless nights, disorientations, exaltations, moulds, special screws, joints, fumes, explosions …
So, it was not easy at all, I promise, but it was worth it. And finally, in 2005 the technology MarcaClacSistema became a European patent.
From then on I have built “Evolved Furniture” and very special solutions with this technology, which has never stopped surprising me, due to its enormous ductility and the endless possibilities which it offers.
The Know-How is now complete and Marcaclac is ready to be used by anybody who wants to overcome the limits imposed by the traditional way of furniture-building.
