INNOVATION:
THE PARADIGM OF OUR OUTDOOR FURNITURE

Innovation is a capacity for renewal, but also the introduction of new systems and processes. Innovation is modernisation and a curious, attentive and unconventional focus on the future.

This is how new materials and mechanisms are developed, continually improving product performance. This is how new patents are filed, how partnerships with numerous national and international research organizations are established.

DESIGN: OUR DISTINCTIVE TRAIT

Elegant, simple, never commonplace. This is the Hotend style. An unmistakable look is one of the strong points that has always distinguished the brand. Passion for unconventional solutions and attention to details like lighting, closures and accessories are just two of the secret ingredients that make it possible to create unique spaces, like your time.

EMOTION: THE TOUCH THAT CAN NEVER BE LACKING

When a space engages, stimulates and amazes, emotion is generated.

The play of light and shadow, integrated audio systems, clean lines: some distinctive elements of Hotend solutions that create special atmospheres and contribute to establishing an intimate relationship between the environment and those who enjoy it.

We want to offer unexpected solutions, personal and customizable spaces that inspire stories, culture and dreams.

We want to excite and create a unique and precious experience. Like your time. Like Hotend.
