Metalco Design Department R&D

The Design Department, born from the mind of Alfredo Tasca, was established with the aim of becoming the research centre and creative centre of the company. Analysis is the first step in Metalco’s planning phase, making use of the internal materials library and market research to kick off the process of choosing the best materials and the most advanced technologies in order to achieve outstanding quality in the result.  Within the department, through collaborations with designers and architects or through a workshop at the planning phase, the “concept”, is the cornerstone in the development of new products, which sees its strong motivation in the formal technical severity and precision.  Thanks to Metalco’s consolidated company structure and highly professional production branch, the project is closely followed through to the realisation phase; following the production of the prototype, step by step, to improve the engineering and to find technical solutions as agreed between the client and the designers.
