A history of Italian design
Founded in 1967 in Fabrica di Roma, Catalano is the leading name in Italian sanitaryware, a name synonymous with luxury and exclusive design.
For over 50 years, our skilled craftsmen have designed and created our award-winning ceramic collections in Italy, which range from expertly made washbasins through to durable WCs, in a variety of hand finished styles.
Designed for designers.
Catalano has been chosen by designers all over the world, from Emporio Armani and the Shangri-La Hotel, to Covent Garden Hotel and Missoni Hotel here in London and Edinburgh.
Our Italian origin means we create the finest ceramics for designers looking to incorporate exclusive sanitaryware features.
From a room solely for washing to a space focused on relaxation and rejuvenation, Catalano has grown with the evolution of bathrooms by staying ahead of technological developments.
We use smart manufacturing procedures to achieve maximum optimisation throughout our production process. Investing in robotics has led to the highest levels of precision and reduced energy consumption, but we’ll always leave the final touch to the expertise of our craftsmen.
"Details make perfection,
and perfection is not a detail"
– Leonardo Da Vinci
We think about the future. With sustainability a priority, our team manage the environmental impact we have at all production levels.
Having achieved EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) certification, Catalano sets the standard for paying close attention to the environmental, social and economic impact of our production and installation methods.
Choosing raw materials that have almost no environmental impact and manufacturing in one single production plant, are huge steps we have taken to reduce our environmental impact and guarantee the origin and authenticity of our ethical designs.
