Founded as Baleri Italia in 1984, by Enrico Baleri, Cerruti Baleri is known for collections that exhibit strong formal and functional qualities, while maintaining a sense of irony and playfulness. When Nino Cerruti joined the company in 2004 he brought with him years of experience working in textile and fashion design, influences easily seen in the companies innovative use of materials like solid wood, marble, printed silk, and hide-leather. Though the company has launched the careers of such prolific designers as Phillipe Stark, Hannes Wettstein, and Luigi Baroli, today they remain committed to research and new talent-scouting in contemporary design. They frequently collaborate with well-known architects, interior designers, and fashion designers.
