Strato was established in 1987 by Gianna Farina and Marco Gorini as an interior design company. The love for cooking and food brought Marco Gorini to create his own custom made kitchen.
In 1990, Strato introduces its first kitchen collection made with high technology and handmade finishings.
In 1991 Strato opened its first show room in Milan and exposed the first Non Plus Ultra collection with a 20cm. thick Corian worktop. The collection rapidly won international fame thanks to the quality, precious materials and the unique design.
During the same year Strato partecipates with a kitchen designed by Ugo La Pietra at the Design Museum La Triennale di Milano.
In 1992 the first Strato factory is built in Talamona, Sondrio and the next year the second part of the factory.
Since 1991 Strato has partecipated in the most important design exhibitions: Milan, Fuori Salone - Verona, Abitare il Tempo - Kortrijk, Interieur - Zürich, Neue Räume - Venice, exhibition Stanley Kubrick , Biennale di Venezia.
