Evolution is not unfamiliar to the Cannata brand. Since 1910, four generations of the Cannata family have supplied, manufactured and installed the best quality
natural, engineered stone and porcelain products.
Despite the changes in trends and technology in more than 100 years, Cannata has not only kept the pace, but set it too. Backed by more than a century of
adaptation and innovation, Claudia King and Italo Cannata Jr. (great granddaughter and great grandson of founder Liborio Cannata) have collaborated with Aimee Wolfaardt of Haardt Design Studio to bring you The Dialogue Room.
Answering the call for an exploratory space in which designers, architects, creatives and their clients can cross-pollinate and create, The Dialogue Room is a sensory and
interactive space that eschews the typical showroom model. The trio envisages this as fertile ground for discussion and discovery, a fluid environment that’s as dynamic as the
Cannata brand. Beyond Cannata’s expertly conceptualised floors, walls and countertops in marble, granite and stone, Cannata and Haardt aim to showcase local talent. In collaboration with other formiddable creatives, they’ll offer clients a glimpse into the extent of Cannata’s capabalities by way of new collections of furniture and decorative stone products. The idea here is to team up with established or emerging designers every quarter to launch exciting new collections.
