Artigo S.p.A., established in 1961 by the Pirelli Group to produce rubber flooring for commercial and industrial applications, is heir to the outstanding heritage of the group founded in 1872 by Giovan Battista Pirelli.

Since 1992 Artigo S.p.A. has been part of a Swiss holding company, which has decided to invest in a very modern new factory in the province of Savona, opened in 1997.

In 2013 Artigo and the Mondo Group, an international player in the field of commercial and sports applications of rubber founded in 1948, combined their know-how and their resources to be even stronger in the market, with a business unit dedicated to contract flooring that counts on three production facilities based in Italy (two) and Luxembourg with over 200 employees.

Artigo has consolidated its international vocation through two European branch offices, France and Spain, and its presence on major markets worldwide in more than 60 countries, operating through a network of distributors (commercial offices and showroom in Milan).

The strategy of the Company is aimed to reach the high end niche of architectural oriented flooring business.

In 2007 the Artigo range  was enriched with three outstanding products, created by the prestigious Sottsass Associati studio winning international design prizes such as the IF award, the Red Dot and the Good Design in Chicago for the Zero.4 flooring.

Kayar, a product made of rubber with coconut fibers has proved to be a major success among the architect community and setting a new aesthetic standard in the business.

Artigo products are eco-sustainable, owing to the quality of their components

According to experts in the company, consumer taste is in continuos evolution, and this is even faster in the African countries. They see a trend tending to a positive globalization of the taste in architecture but with a constant look at nature and tradition. One of the company’s  products, Kayar, follow this trend, a modern looking product with a romantic and natural appeal given by the coconut fibres.
