The company, with the name of Falegnameria Toscana, was founded in 1963 by Armido Ristori, who, along with another three partners, made his entry into the world of furniture, specializing in the production of furniture for the home and kitchen modules.
From the very beginning passion and hard work have been the distinctive characteristics of this master craftsmen’s company, a company
that has always had the achievement of excellence as its prime objective.
The real turning point in the company’s history came about in the 1970’s, thanks to a meeting with the designer Giancarlo Vegni. The firm, which had been transformed from a carpenters’ workshop into a veritable industry, began to specialize in mass-produced fitted kitchens.
In 1973 the factory plant was constructed on an area of 60,000 m2 and that is how Effeti industries came to be. A modern efficient company, with a clear innovative character and with the entire production line for its kitchens on the factory grounds, from the working of the wood, metals and alloys to the painting, varnishing, finishing of the doors and delivery of the finished product.
Directed at design
For more than forty years, Effeti has been inspired by the curiosity to explore and interpret new lifestyles, the changes in taste and customs that affect the needs people have and the way they live. The Tuscan brand’s vocation is to think of whatever doesn’t exist, explore new routes, accept new challenges in the visionary worlds of research and creativity and, to these thoughts, apply experience, technological knowhow, the search for quality without compromise and the care and passion that have always characterized Effeti’s mission and work as an interpreter of Italian design worldwide. Not only a vocation to the project of kitchens, but also sensitivity for structure and the furnishing of spaces, with a diversified range of systems designed according to international standards of style, as a forerunner to new requirements and changes in contemporary living.
Kitchens made in Firenze
Effeti is born from a line. A first, small sign that colours a lush land.
As every man contains the innate desire to be something more, so the line seeks to surpass itself, to remove the ultimate limit of the segment that clips the wings of change. Effeti finds its strength in its surroundings, in that Tuscany that nourishes artists who more than anyone have believed in the possibility of going beyond.
Its roots are grounded in terrain rich in culture, creativity and unrealised dreams. Harmonious countryside, centuries-old tradition and the unique atmosphere of the landscape are the muses that dwell in each small element.
