In 1980, on the benches of Lake Como in Italy, Giuliano Malimpensa founds Mesa.
After working with Gio Ponti, Cetti Serbelloni, Bruno Munari and other masters of Italian Design, he decides to establish a design firm that would merge Artistic creations with the old tradition of Italian Silversmithing. His aim was to create objects that would be Art pieces with a function, in order to enrich people’s everyday life through Art and craftsmanship.


The great tradition of Italian Silversmithing embodies centuries of knowhow, translated into the ability to create incredible Design items for whom every aspect of the making is exclusively handmade.
Hundreds of years of tradition are celebrated in the gestures and in the knowledgable hands of Mesa’s long trained artisans, making of every Mesa piece a unique and exquisite experience. The obsession for excellence and for the most exquisite Italian manufacturing are the true DNA of Mesa.



From 1986 to 1996 Mesa is invited by Riedel Glass to collaborate on a special collection, the iconic Silver Line a collection of household and kitchenware items hand crafted with the highest Silversmithing techniques.
1996 is also a very important year for the enterprise: Simona and Davide Malimpensa, Giuliano’s daughter and elder son join the family business, driving the company into the future of Italian Design.


From 1996 to 1999, in fact, that Mesa is invited to take part to the travelling exhibition “Italian Silvers – Design Selection”. The exhibition brings Mesa’s most iconic and celebrated pieces to the main capitals worldwide, establishing the precious know how and the outstanding designs globally.





In 2001 Mattia Malimpensa, Giuliano’s youngest son, joins the company and from 2001 to 2012 Mesa is invited to design and realize the first prize for Monza Formula 1 car race, exporting Italian excellence to the world.



From 1980 until today, Mesa continues to collaborate with important Italian designers, that contribute to enrich the decades-long Mesa production with outstanding and always innovative design pieces.

Giuliano is still working in the now over 40 years old design firm, infusing every object with his knowledge and philosophy. Every Mesa item is still today produced entirely by hand with traditional techniques, the production is organized in small, artisanal batches.


The Mesa Atelier on the banks of Lake Como keeps hiring young talents to pass on the craftsmanship and the know-how of our senior Italian artisans, maintaining alive the centuries-long tradition of Italian Silvers.
