Da Riccardo Barthel non esiste elemento che non si possa ricreare o rimettere a nuovo. Basta che sia vintage. Per la gioia degli armatori

An italian design firm transforms discreet-but-luxe kitchens with a timeless florentine aesthetic
Maria Shollenbarger, Elle Decor UK
They are so creative, and so unique. When we were planning the kitchens for the vi l las, I immediately thought of them. I’ve known Riccardo for years; he designed our kitchen in Florence, a very functional space, but with a strong, pronounced homey feeling.

Influenced by the visionary aesthetics of the Florentine tradition, Riccardo Barthel's artisan excellence has been producing a cohesive world for over forty years: from taps to lamps, from handles to bathroom and kitchen accessories, the emphasis on details encounters the original plan that defines an exclusive style for the historic brand.
The antiquarian soul of the Barthel universe meets the manufacturing process of the Florentine workshop giving life to Brocante - the collection of old furniture and vintage pieces transformed by a work of restoration and reinterpretation according to a unique design. Each product contains a story waiting to be told: through the enhancement of its qualities and its functions Riccardo Barthel manages to give it the voice it deserves.
L'angolo delle occasioni
Forniture and odd objects that have been in display for a while, old models of appliances, storage leftovers, orders that have been changed.
In a few words our “on sale” section
Producer of exclusive-style faucets and bathroom accessories, Lefroy Brooks draws inspiration from late Victorian design, without forgetting to offer also a more contemporary proposal.
From hôtellerie to shipbuilding, from residential to contract solutions, the inimitable Barthel’s design responds to different needs with coherence and becomes the protagonist of contemporary living, furnishing with refinement, flair and versatility.
As an exclusive response to the needs of a design with an international taste, Barthel’s achievements respect the care and the craftsmanship experience of the Florentine tradition paired with a Made in Italy production process.
In 2003 Riccardo Barthel debuted in the yatching area not only through the artisanal reproduction of original vintage boats components - from bronze to glass, through porcelain, fabrics, steel and wood - but also through a productive range of ideal items for newly built nautical environments.
