The project is based on high-end design and the sophistication of the solutions proposed in the catalogues, so as to combine modernity, elegance and ability to be always at the forefront. The first prototypes by Siderio were created by Davide Onofri and Gianfranco and Mattia Delbarba (father and son). Mattia Delbarba is a business partner of Archè Italia Srl. Later, he was involved in the project of the famous architect Pierangelo Sciuto: new products were invented and the first collection by Siderio was presented to the public in November 2013.
But what is Siderio's origin? Gianfranco Delbarba, founder and CEO of Archè Italy Srl, after having obtained a diploma in surveying in 1985 in Brescia, began working as an apprentice at Carpenser until he became responsible for the commercial and production area. It was the family business working in the production of iron and aluminium doors and windows and metallic carpentry. When in 1998 he became manager of the company, he devoted the company to the production of glass and steel structures and then he founded in 2009 Archè Italia. The collaboration of Gianfranco Delbarba with Davide Onofri (industrial designer of Archè Italy) dates back to 1994, when Onofri (a mechanical engineer who specialized in industrial design) entered Carpenser's staff. After the fulfillment increasingly advanced ideas and important projects, the collaboration resulted in 2013 in Archè Italia. Onofri is the industrial designer and designer of Siderio: the brand is now a real workshop of ideas where furnishings are created always at the forefront of steel and glass working, through a new way of conceiving furniture. The management of Siderio is entrusted mostly to Mattia Delbarba, a mechanical engineer passionate about design and creative strategist in Archè Italia. He joined Siderio in 2013 and since then he takes care of the expansion of the brand towards new markets, first of all the US.Therefore, Siderio arises as an opportunity developed through a series of choices to pursue its founders' aspirations.

The choices are clear, but the ideas are constantly evolving to stay ahead. The distinctive features of the brand are found amongst the characteristics of the furnishings in the various collections of the catalogue: for example, they can be horizontal or vertical, but in any case lines are precise and all pieces are manufactured by combining high technology with the craftsmanship of the process. For this brand, substance is more important than ornaments: there are not many frills, while the basic principles are solid. The current catalogue includes highly versatile magazine-racks and painted steel bookcases: both furnishings complements and furniture produced by this brand are made with the greatest care by expert hands. In particular, the shelves can be moved upright thanks to a special joint that by the way is a registered patent by Siderio: for this reason the brand has a unique style and its products are always original.

The production ranges from a basic solution to the more advanced versions through the infinite assembly possibilities.
