Riccardo Barthel

Born in 1976 from Riccardo’s passion for interior design, the Barthel universe was given birth at a small ceramics shop on Via dei Fossi, just a few steps away from Palazzo Rucellai. The famous Barthel tiles became the foundation for the bathroom, lights and handles collections. 

The company then experienced congruous and refined growth, corroborated in 1994 from the shop transfer to the heart of the Florentine Oltrarno and, a few years later, from the opening of a second showroom in Forte dei Marmi.

Riccardo’s experience has been handed down to his son Francesco, who for more than twenty years has led the company alongside his father, and together they have been able to weave the destiny of Florentine craftsmanship into a particular taste with all the elegance that has enchanted their international clientele.
