Virtual Salone del Mobile 2020: PUNT, the starting point of beauty and style

PUNT means point in the Valencian local language and it is the beginning of a line, which is constituted in turn by a series of points following a particular path in the space. Lines generate forms, forms shape new designs and therefore create beauty and style. This is the very process that defines the brand and explains its strong commitment to design since its inception in the 80s.

Drawing inspiration mainly form Nordic modern design, the firm has developed its own identity mainly based on crafts and design, a sort of Scandi-Mediterranean character that is its most distinguishing hallmark in the market and has been very well received by professional of the interior design industry.
