Design Republic comes from an idea of the Mornata family, established furniture retailers and design objects in Milan, which in 2015 decided to renovate its historic store in Corso di Porta Ticinese and to support an online platform, making the selection of products accessible to customers all over the world.
Design Republic, both as a site and as a store/showroom, is aimed at an audience of design lovers and quality products, wanting to become a point of reference especially for "nordic lovers", audience that is increasingly curious and fond of Scandinavian design and Northern Europe, in search of novelty and really intrigued by originality. In the catalog is proposed a selection of products ranging from international brands but also leaving space to the Made in Italy, from the "classics" of design to the most cutting edge objects.
The Design Republic store in Milan is also a showroom, where customers can go see and try the products they find on sale on the website.
In 2017 it's time to grow, and in November the Milanese shop dedicated to Nordic furniture doubles with the new space of Piazza Tricolore.
A two-storey shop, with 500 square meters of exhibition space, in Piazza Tricolore 2, which has become an icon for the distribution of Scandinavian furniture in Milan. There are also 300 square meters of warehouse that will be used as offices and which, for special occasion, will become a space for presentations, shooting and events.
With Designrepublic it’s time for the New Scandinavian style, with brands such as Hay, Gubi, & tradition, Normann Copenhagen, Playtipe, Design Letters. But you can also find high-level Italian brands such as Gervasoni, Campeggi and Zanotta, which due to their uniqueness and creativity integrate very well with the range of Nordic products.
