GREEN IS BETTER!

Eco sustainability

For us at Arquati’s attention for quality of the products always comes with practical attention towards the production processes and the skilful use of energy resources, focusing especially on renewable sources to reduce the impact of all the processes on the environment.
From small production waste we created our recycled acrylic fabrics line with colours highly resistant to UV rays. The acrylic yarn is created from a process that uses less water and chemical products, thus it lowers CO2 emissions and extends the use of natural resources.

OUTSIDE THE BOX COMMUNICATION

Showroom Arquati

Restructured in 2018, the showroom designed by Franco Arquati reconstructs indoors an urban setting made of streets, squares and shops. The ideal scene to smartly feature all the products in the catalogue and show them to the customers during the course of real “event” days.
To this day, this is the pride of the production site, a real 3D catalogue to walk through and be inspired by Arquati’s design and the style.
