PRODUCT QUALITY

THE AUTHENTIC MEANING OF “MADE IN ITALY”

Where does quality come from?

The quality of a product is an outcome, the result of several qualities that integrate when an object is made – a good, a product, a service – of a universally recognised higher value. An object that will product, for several years, the work that it was conceived for, fully in compliance with the required standards, and above all, with the expectations of the user.

QUALITY DERIVES FROM RESEARCH

This statement may sound trivial and obvious, but without an on-going research programme that starts with a needs analysis and follows through to the choice of materials and production processes, even the best product is destined to become obsolete quickly.
This is one of the challenges that is made even more difficult by globalisation, and the users benefit from all of these developments.
Each year, Missaglia allocates a significant amount of its turnover to research and product development.
Our extensive experience of the needs of elderly people who are no longer self-sufficient, gained through direct management of long-term care facilities, is the most precious part of our ethical, cultural and technical backgrounds. We use the tool of knowledge to fuel design.

QUALITY IN INNOVATION

Fostering product innovation by integrating traditional knowledge and methods with new materials and the most advanced production methods is one of the goals that we are constantly pursuing. Studies and experimentation of new materials – ecological and recyclable, with a low environmental and energy impact – allows us to design products able to improve the quality of performance and the duration, while also reducing maintenance and assistance costs considerably.

THE QUALITY OF “MADE IN ITALY”

Skill cannot be made up, and neither can it be learned in a short period of time. This is especially true for skills that combine artisan knowledge and industrial know-how. Missaglia works in the heart of one of the most specialised industrial districts in Italy: Brianza, an area that has been famous for over two centuries for its woodworking and furniture production, and since the last century for design. Therefore, it is the proverbial excellence of our craftsman and our compliance with the strictest quality standards and safety regulations to make each authentic Italian-made product stand out among all the rest.

QUALITY IN DESIGN: DANCING BETWEEN MORE AND LESS

More attractive, more functional. More comfortable, more durable. Lighter and easier to handle. Safer and more ergonomic. Nevertheless, these products attract less dirt, take up less space, cost less and are less fragile. This could go on: there are countless design qualities, the form of contemporary art that allows us to invent and make beautiful objects that are well made, pleasant to look at, function and extremely comfortable. This is our commitment, the pride of our work.
