Story About grado
The Story Begins
grado means “degree”in Italian. It reminds us to see designs from new perspectives, to pursue a simple and natural style, to design furniture that are related to daily life closely. We try to bring furniture back into the nature of “a houseware”, a friendly object like something from the old days.
grado hopes that each product has its own unique story, transmitting our pursuit of quality and thinking about design. We believe that design conveys the beauty of lifestyle and space aesthetics. We design products and create atmosphere through vision and smell to add vitality to the environment.
We are from Hangzhou, China
We are from Hanzhou, China, a famous historical city, adjacent to the Qiantang River and the West Lake, the end of the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal, and the capital city of the Southern Song Dynasty. The region contributed to the beauty of Su Shi's poems about the West Lake , and Marco Polo called it the crown of the world's cities. Known for its humanistic and romantic spirit, it bred stories like Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai, an eastern fairy love story, and it is also where the grave of Yue Fei, a General widely known for his loyalty, lies permanently. This storytelling city incubated a brand like grado, and it also gathered a group of ambitions people to achieve a same dream.
