The journey from Portarredo to Linvisibile is a narrative of relentless innovation, adaptation, and a deep understanding of the architectural space. As the company looks to the future, it remains committed to pushing the boundaries of design and technology while honoring the people who have been instrumental in its journey.
From Portarredo to Linvisibile: A Journey of Innovation
In 1984, the seeds of what would become a revolutionary force in the world of architectural design were sown with the founding of Portarredo. This artisanal enterprise, crafted with tradition and innovation, was the brainchild of two visionary individuals: Silvano Maranini, with his exceptional sales acumen, and Silvano Vaccari, the technical soul. Their synergy laid the foundation for a company that would not just create products, but redefine an industry.
A decade of growth and visionary thinking culminated in 1997 when Portarredo transformed into Linvisibile. This was not just a change of name, but a reflection of an evolving philosophy centered on the synthesis of aesthetics, technicality, and an acute ability to listen and understand the needs of designers and architects. This transformative period saw the creation of the first flush-to-wall door, a groundbreaking innovation that seamlessly blended doors with their surroundings.
Industrial Evolution and Expansion
The journey of Linvisibile took a significant turn in 2000 when it evolved into a commercial brand. This evolution was a response to the growing demand for innovative products, leading to the relocation of our office to a larger site in Molinella in 2001. The company continued to innovate, patenting pivot and sliding door systems, and solidifying its position as a leader in the Italian market of design and architecture. The marketing office played a pivotal role in this expansion, enhancing the brand’s visibility and reach.
The year 2006 marked another milestone for Linvisibile as it moved to Argenta, now the site of both its production buildings and offices. This move was indicative of the company’s continuous growth and the increasing demand for its unique products. The expansion of Linvisibile necessitated the opening of flagship stores, starting with the first in Milan. Today, Linvisibile boasts over six showrooms worldwide, each a testament to the brand’s global appeal and recognition.
