COMPANY


In 1926 Federico CANOBBIO lays the foundations of the company by manufacturing canvas for agriculture and articles for saddlery; it is the beginning of a long way of applications and experiences with textile materials which is still going on nowadays. During the Fifties, manufacturing circus tents, first real example of light structures, CANOBBIO makes a decisive step ahead in designing and in the new application of textile coverings for big structures.

The innovation proceeds with new fabrics and this means a technical rearrangement of the production system; therefore, in the Sixties, CANOBBIO sets up the first welding machines for PVC membranes by using high frequency microwaves and starts with the constitution of a qualified technical staff for the design and the promotion of a new technology for the construction of light structures.

With the computer aid, in the Seventies, designing is enriched with the possibility to modify and transform in real time a formal configuration and rapidly carry out the calculations.

Today, with the acquired instruments and know-how, CANOBBIO gives the opportunity to each designer to develop and fulfill his own ideas
