Obbligato manufactures an exclusive range of original, handcrafted contemporary plant containers, furniture and accessories for a modern lifestyle.
We specialise in developing unique, versatile products that are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, with a focus on incorporating simple, elegant shapes and minimalist elements.
The "slow" movement which is trending in the contemporary furniture manufacturing market is celebrating the return of small-batch, handmade, authentic items. The discerning consumer is seeking unique, well-constructed pieces made from responsibly-sourced materials in place of mass-produced, disposable furnishings. Provenance, authenticity and longevity matter.
