A general overview to the global contemporary needs and STRATO® offering
According to recent studies, the 2020 global pandemic led people to differently consider family spaces and natural environments.

According to recent studies, nowadays the trend is to research and select products characterized by natural and soft colors, which reflect the calm and inner peace, and originated from sustainable sources, respecting the environment in which we live in.
Following in the footsteps, in order to meet consumer demand and adopt a sustainable approach in daily practices, STRATO has translated this change by mixing colors and finishings with new products with low environmental impact and high-quality materials.
