Craftsmanship Made in Sicily

On the slopes of Etna, the Artesole Art Factory,
transform the hot Lava into real design!

Between Art and Crafts

With the material that the Etna volcano offers, ARTESOLE loves to transform into works of art , what appears to many to be a shapeless and soulless gray matter.

This is the thought of the owners who have been able to create their work in complete freedom. In the management of their company, the managerial staff formed by Giuseppe, Gianvito and Michele shares every day the passion for their work . The selection of the raw material and its transformation into furnishing solutions that ARTESOLE offers to its clientele arose from the presence of creative imagination which makes each proposed item unique .

Design and refinement: the leitmotiv that characterizes each complement chosen for sale.

Lava stone to give strength and color, Wood, to give warmth. Iron, to give resistance. Ceramics, to give elegance.

Lava Stone decoration

For this reason, in each product it is possible to find beauty in the shapes and in the decorations , technology in the combination of materials and nature in the materials themselves. Each article expresses a lifestyle, say the owners of talking about their products. So not only design and technology products, but also a valid collaboration service for its customers, in order to grow together.

ARTESOLE has been operating for over forty years on the national and international territory. She conducts her business with professionalism and seriousness and this has guaranteed her a satisfied and aware clientele. In fact, customers follow the sales proposal as they know they can find refinement and avant-garde in the products purchased.

The products it produces cannot lack harmony and innovation : inseparable characteristics in order to give validity to the goods and quality to the service .
