Roberto Faelli now CEO of the Group, among other creative positions in the Company, was also the Financial Director for overseas operations. Roberto is designing and following the creative and technical side of most of the projects Hipret has been awarded with. His philosophy, while designing, is first of all to give a totally original and bespoke aspect to each project taking care of the Client’s needs and taste. The challenge is to give always something new, to study and use new materials and last, but not least, to deliver everything technologically belonging to the high end segment. Everything is bespoke: from the lift, to the very sophisticated HVAC and lighting system, the size, material and shape of the wood flooring, everything in the rooms, in the bathrooms. The table bases are all custom made, the wall covering, tiles mosaics are designed in collaboration with the main manufacturers. In a recent project he has designed some very impressive pendants composed by specially made Murano Glass painted tubes. In his mind, everything must be excellent, high end, unique but always within the budget agreed with the Client.
