About Us

Based in Johannesburg, Berloni South Africa, was Established in March of 1990 by The Italian Design Experience Group, with the vision of importing Italian kitchens of the highest quality – Berloni Kitchens – and offering the South African market a complete kitchen solution from design to installation. While at first focusing on the kitchen industry, the company soon expanded rapidly and offered its discerning cliental a variety of other Italian produced home furnishings and accessories. The group was then well positioned to service not only the consumer and building industry, but also the hospitality sector which it did with great success. In 1993 the group’s bathroom company, Tapitalia, was founded.

Respecting our Environment

We always ensure that we collaborate with reputable manufacturers that view their environmental responsibility and carbon foot print reduction very seriously. The production process of each item is carefully evaluated with regard to its environmental impact and carefully aligned to conform with the eco-compatibility objectives.
The primary aim has always been to strike a balance between eco-sustainabililty and design with regard to the production cycles and raw materials implemented in the manufacturing of our products. Besides using natural energy and resources each company rigorously controls its emissions into the atmosphere and the substances released into the ground as a result of various product manufacturing phases.
Examples of this strong commitment include the intiation of a waste reduction and recycling plan coupled with water protection measures that have enabled the elimination of all industrial water emissions.
