STOSA: quality kitchens since 1964.
Stosa Cucine is the beautiful story of one man and his family, and how a dream became reality, guided by passion and skill transmitted from one generation to the next.
It is also the story of a great company that has been producing quality Italian kitchens for over 55 years and is internationally recognised and appreciated for its innovation and style.
Piancastagnaio, Tuscany: production of the first kitchens begins in a 300 square meter workshop.
The Sani family, owners of Stosa Cucine, oversees the company’s growth and consolidation.
A larger factory is purchased, along Strada Cassia in the Val di Paglia area.
Stosa Cucine becomes a Limited Company. Already a producer of high-design kitchens, Stosa takes the important step of becoming an international brand.
By now an expanding international holding, Stosa builds an imposing new HQ of over 50,000 square metres, still the heart of the great Stosa family today.
Stosa is an internationally recognised brand, with a constantly growing turnover, that continues to expand.
“We design products that make customers proud to have chosen Stosa. We create exceptional value for customers and dealers around the world.”
Stosa strives daily to improve the quality of life through excellent products, high design content and a constant commitment to research and development, because designing a kitchen does not just mean furnishing one room in the house, it means participating in the project of a lifetime.
Stosa Cucine is a forward-looking company with a powerful, well-defined brand that is a point of reference for the entire kitchen sector: this is the role Stosa has built for itself over the years. Today Stosa has strong and lasting partnerships with its dealers and is the preferred choice of customers in over 40 countries worldwide.
Italian design and approach
Stosa Cucine uses design and a unique approach to production as ways to add value to customers’ homes through furniture, complements and design solutions.
Thorough analysis of the latest trends and needs, a combination of creativity and functionality, a continuous exchange of ideas and attention to technology… Stosa is home to a strong design culture based on rigorous methods and a spirit of innovation, tailored to achieve one key objective: excellence.
As Stosa has grown, the company has become a laboratory for ideas in which space is given to different interpretations to satisfy customers’ needs and desires.
Above all, through style and functionality, Stosa design adds value to the time each one of us spends in the kitchen and at home.
Kitchen, lounge and endless design flexibility: consumers can choose between 2 product lines (Modern and Classic), 3 design systems (Evolution System, Look System and Classic Glam), over 1,000 finishes, 500 door colours, and 5 opening systems in an amazing number of variants.
Stosa uses its products to create unique solutions that deliver a personalised experience in space and style.
Quality, ergonomics, innovation
The quality of Stosa kitchens is the result of a combination of smart choices: foremost among these is the selection of top-quality materials and high-performance internal accessories which, together with technological partnerships with leading white goods brands, make every product unique and long-lasting.
Attention to detail is a key feature of all Stosa products, and meticulous care is taken over every design.
Thorough and constantly updated ergonomic research allows Stosa to design well organised spaces that are easy to clean and meet customers’ need for functionality.
Everything that Stosa does is guided by a fundamental value: our intrinsic commitment to innovation.
Technical innovation above all: Stosa’s policy of targeted investment has led to the creation of one of the most modern production systems in the business, with a high level of automation, optimised production flows and logistics and, of course, an advanced product development process.
In addition to technology, Stosa is also innovative in its way of thinking: our corporate culture is constantly evolving, welcoming new ideas, striving for flexibility and accepting challenges. At Stosa, we are committed to critical self-examination in order to continue improving and achieving increasingly ambitious targets.
Design guides the creation of all Stosa kitchens, which stand out for scrupulous attention to detail, original finish and colour combinations and high-impact appearance. Every project is the fruit of an ongoing journey of research and innovation, and combines looks, ergonomics and functionality in a product styled to respond to different tastes and to provide the highest level of performance.

Certified ltalian Kitchen
Stosa gives customers an additional guarantee. Our determination to provide top-quality and long-lasting products and to achieve continuous improvement is underscored by our decision to obtain some of the most prestigious certifications in the world.

The certification that Stosa has chosen to obtain covers areas of fundamental importance to the manufacture of top-quality furniture: the production chain, the product itself and respect for the environment.

ISO 9001 is one of the most influential standards in the world.
As an evolved company, Stosa has chosen ISO 9001 certification because it understands that continuous innovation and research are essential to future prosperity.
Stosa also believes that employees need to be kept constantly informed, trained and directly involved in implementing the Quality Management System.
The ISO 9001 model also serves as a strategic tool for living up to the promises we make to customers and for measuring performance through specific indicators.

COSMOB Qualità Praemium (CQP) “Circular manufacturing in the furniture industry”
Stosa Cucine is among the few Italian companies certified by COSMOB, a prestigious notified body for the manufacturing and wood furniture sectors. COSMOB assesses the circularity of production processes and provides companies with an objective certification of transparency on sustainability matters.
The process covers all phases from concept and design to the selection and sourcing of materials and final production. It also evaluates eco-design, the efficient use of all resources and, finally, the recovery and/or recycling of the certified products.
COSMOB has monitored and assessed all these aspects at Stosa Cucine and has certified our company’s ability to implement an industrial process that is centred around respect for the environment and people and that extends to every stage in the furniture production chain, from the manufacturing lines all the way to customer’s homes.
It has been specifically demonstrated that here at Stosa, the percentage of material that can be re-used approaches 100%. Laminate and melamine panels, for example, are 96% circularly sourced.

The FSC® fulfils its mission by setting rigorous standards for good practice in forest management and also establishes the environmental, social and economic requirements that must be satisfied in the so-called “Chain of Custody”, i.e. the system that ensures the traceability of material sourced from forests throughout the chain of production and sale.
All Stosa kitchen units are made from CARB P2 certified materials. Carcasses are made from recyclable panels with an extremely low formaldehyde content, further demonstrating Stosa’s commitment to protecting the environment and saving natural resources.
