It is an ascent for Bolzan, the Treviso-based company founded in 1989 to explore the universe of textile beds. Bolzan Letti has kept on growing, thanks to a strategic international vision of design.
The credit goes to Piercarlo Bolzan, director of the R+D division, with his technical know-how leading to the first innovative patented solutions, and his sister Elisabetta, who guides the family business by focusing on values of expertise, as well as relations with the territorial context and its examples of outstanding excellence.
The prefect blend of industry and crafts has enabled Bolzan to become a brand of choice for hospitality projects, such as Hotel Falkensteiner Kronplatz, near Bolzano, and Ca’ Del Tentor in Venice.
The first is a 5-star hotel inspired by the passion of the Alpine sports legends of Alto Adige, the variety of the mountains and the creativity of Matteo Thun, designer of the project. An oasis of peace immersed in the uncontaminated nature of Plan de Corones, near the most beautiful peaks of the Dolomites, in which two beds from the Bolzan catalogue, Sailor and Corolle (both the brainchild of Elisabetta Bolzan), personalized in terms of the fabrics that also cover the mattresses, become places of relaxation inside the spa area.

Positioned at the end of the wellness itinerary, in front of full-height windows offering a fine view of the landscape outside, the beds are inserted with discreet elegance in a space of terse aesthetics dominated by wood, thanks to the headboards woven by hand with age-old techniques interpreted in a contemporary pattern (Sailor) or upholstered with diamond stitching (Corolle).

The rigorous selection of the wood, the coverings and the padding, the solid and precise crafting of the structures and the attention to detail of Bolzan are also key factors for Ca’ Del Tentor in Venice. This is a hybrid property, halfway between a distributed hotel and a B&B, a few minutes from the Rialto Bridge and St. Mark’s, inserted in the fascinating context of Campo San Giacomo dall’Orio, where the historic church and old taverns plunge visitors into a typically Venetian atmosphere.
Here Bolzan has created custom products to adapt to the critical factors of historical buildings (corridors, bottlenecks, staircases, and so on), not only in terms of cumbersome furnishings but also in terms of their packing so they can easily be transported into the rooms. Elisabetta Bolzan says: “The company has its own woodworking shop, recently updated with machinery for woodworking 4.0, and upholstery operations. This combination allows us to make fine products to measure, with exceptional quality control. Clients can collaborate with use from the very first phases of the project.”

Relying on a 100% Italian chain of suppliers, all the production is carried out as in an artisan workshop. “Our strong point is to have craftsmen and professionals who share in our passion,” Elisabetta Bolzan continues.
This is because the sustainability pursued by Bolzan is not only about recycling, low-impact transformation and production circularity – it is also a matter of ethical work. The numbers tell the story: almost 4.9 million euros in sales in 2021, +60% over the previous year, and a forecast of +20% for 2022.
