Like a fingerprint left on an object, design pieces are numbered in limited collections. Production is made in small batches, to give every object the care and attention it deserves. The action of numbering a material always precedes the creation of a product, giving to it a unique value as it happens to a precious metal.


“The linearity, the essence of the matter, the power of iconographic forms make the products full of meanings, telling an artisan virtuosity which merges with the world of design.”

Discover Mingardo Products


Ilario Mingardo, Daniele’s father, founded Mingardo Blacksmith Workshop in 1970, after over twenty years of experience in metal manufacturing. The production was initially focused on simple blacksmith works for the construction industry. Over time, thanks to an increasingly refined production process, the company started collaborating with internationally renowned companies and architects like Carlo Scarpa, the Italian master of restoration and museum architecture. At the age of 25, Daniele Mingardo decided to launch his own brand showcasing the first home collection at Milan Design Week 2013 in Italy. Receiving overwhelming response, Mingardo Designer Faber is now synonymous of exclusive, contemporary design objects crafted with precision and high-quality finishing.


“I like to get my hands dirty with good ideas” is the new Mingardo motto.
