Porro Furniture: designing in the tradition of woodworking
Clean design and simple lines combined with geometric shapes and solid wood: these are the traits that have marked Porro Furniture since 1925.
The elegance of Porro Design is found in their finishing touches, studied to transmit the technical quality of their work through the smallest details. Their collection spans from bookcases to beds, including every type of interior decor accessory.
Thanks to the union of artisanal tradition and modern technology, Porro Furniture exhibits a careful selection of designs capable of valuing every-day life, without abandoning the simplicity of its products.
An example can be found in the Porro Storage series, a collection of tailor-made wardrobes and modular furniture systems capable of satisfying every need, thanks to a balanced mix of open-air and traditional design solutions.

Porro Design: simplicity aiding creativity
Since its origin, Porro Milano has been one of the greatest names of Italian design. The brand's logo, designed in 1966 by Bruno Munari, depicted the firm's ability to unite wood and style, which soon became the company's distinctive trademark.
The rigor of its shapes and simplicity of its geometry accomodates different uses and creative drives and allows Porro Milano’s designs to fit customised projects and suit different spaces. Thus, the combinable and versatile quality of the Porro Design Wardrobe collection is ideal for those who truly want to explore the concept of space.
Despite the modern features of its shapes, Porro Design stays true to its traditional element: wood. Thanks to its stripped-down style, Porro Furniture doesn’t dominate the space it is placed in, but simply helps to define it. The delicate and elegant shapes of their designs create graceful harmony both when unifying a space and when serving as a partition.
An example of their signature style is seen in the Boutique Mast system. The system can be personalised in its use and finishes, and combines expressive freedom with aesthetic lightness. Inspired by boat masts, it suits both floor-to-ceiling and wall structures. It is comprised of circular metallic pillars on which cantilevered shelves can be installed, beautifully impacting its visual appearance.
Despite opening its doors to collaborations with international designers and thus reaching a more global design look, Porro Milano is always recognisable thanks to its use of simple shapes. Indeed, thanks to Porro’s trademark principle of subtraction, the company’s designs are able convey simplicity even within the most complex compositions.
Porro Storage: a modular wardrobe system
Porro Storage is a flexible wardrobe system that uses modularity to give ample space to the designer’s creativity. The combinations can create everything from open-air wardrobes to more traditional closed ones, and always allow you to personalise each product along every step of the design process.
You can perfect your dressing area by complementing your Porro Storage structure with a number of different finishes and accessories, from rails to dressers. It also offers in between solutions such as the Boiserie Storage system, that gives a vintage touch to a luxurious design. The Boiserie Storage, in fact, comprises a wide range of modular wall panels that can give the wardrobe a look halfway between a walk-in closet and an open wardrobe. The result is a closet with a visually lighter feel to it.
Undoubtedly, the uniqueness of the Porro Milano storage system is the spatial continuity of the design, in which the sides become gateways that bring air and light while offering stability to the wardrobe itself.
