Design Republic launched in 2015 in Milan by an idea from the Mornata family, established design and furniture retailers, as a Scandinavian design reference in Italy and not only. The website and the first showroom were established together in order to make a selection of products available to customers in different countries but still keep a close contact with the local requests.
Design Republic, both as a website and as a store/showroom, aims towards an audience who loves design and quality products. Design Republic sees itself as a reference point for the "nordic lovers", an audience that is increasing and very fond of Scandinavian design and Northern Europe. The catalogue proposes a selection of products ranging from international brands but also leaving space for the Made in Italy design, from the "classics" to the most cutting edge objects.
The first showroom, in Corso di Porta di Ticinese 3, being located near the Duomo offers a wider shopping experience than only being a showroom, ranging from small gadgets and furniture to sofa’s and libraries.
In 2017 Design Republic decides it’s time to grow and opens their second showroom in Piazza del Tricolore 2, a two-floor shop, with 500 square meters of exhibition space and becoming an icon for the distribution of Scandinavian furniture in Milan. There are also 300 square meters of warehouse that used as offices and which, during special occasions, will become a space for presentations, shooting and events.
With Design Republic it’s time for the New Scandinavian style available in store locally in Milan and worldwide online , with brands such as Hay, Gubi, & tradition, Normann Copenhagen, Playtipe, Design Letters and so many more. 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.
