Our Headquarters in Massa, Tuscany

Di-lite is based the northern part of Tuscany, this area is a hiker’s paradise: mountain paths, peaks, sea shores and a good climate... so, naturally, we love camping. 

Over the years outdoor activities have gifted me with a lot of beautiful memories but far less beautiful are the ones related to carrying gear around: 

In the summer of 2014 I went camping with a bunch of friends and, being the one in charge of chairs and tents, i carried them all along the path to the camping zone. 

The weight was too much and as I got to the campsite I realized I strained my back, and for the following week I've been completely unable to move. 

It was then that, just for fun, I began to think of a way to improve portable furniture; joining forces with my father Paolo, longtime designer and geometry enthusiast, we started taking it seriously; in the following 3 years we developed a revolutionary technology and, as the team has gained new essential members,  we're now finally ready to bring our first incredible invention to production.
