Scarabeo Ceramiche was founded in 1974, in Civita Castellana, by Giovanni Calisti and other partners, with the manufacture of elegant and functional washbasins. Their success was almost immediate, helping to establish the company both in Italy and abroad and resulting in the signing of strategic agreements with other companies in the sector.
In 1981, our passion for design turned us into the Europe’s leading company in the creation of ceramic bathroom accessories. In 1998, we launched our designer washbasins on the market, followed over the years by the thin-rimmed and square models and the model without a water containment rim.
A series of successes led to expansion of the Civita Castellana plant in 2004 and to opening of the Fabrica di Roma plant in 2008.
The creativity of our master ceramicist, Giovanni Calisti, combined with the collaboration of an international designer, resulted in the first organic collection, called Moai, in 2010, and presentation of the Bucket range of washbasins at the Cersaie ceramic trade fair in Bologna in 2012, with its unusual bucket shape, which received the Frankfurt Design Plus award. Outstanding examples of the most recent Scarabeo Ceramiche collections include: Glam and Teorema 2.0, which won the Iconic Design Awards - Innovative Architecture in 2018, together with the Up and Frame ranges.
Craftsmanship and sustainability
Here at Scarabeo Ceramiche, we manufacture our products by combining ancient ceramic processing techniques dating to the pre-Roman era with high-tech machinery, allowing us to transform ceramic into genuine and highly original works of art that are also functional. We care about the environment and the health of our employees, so we have been applying ethical practices and techniques for years, making us a sustainable company. Together with zero-impact production, solar power systems at our plants, reduction of wasted energy and recycling of waste, we have adopted working hours that respect the body clock of our employees, to help them lead a healthy lifestyle.
The Glam and Teorema 2.0 collections
Our most recent collections include Glam, an elegant range of exclusive washbasins designed by Emo Design for Scarabeo, available in a wide range of sizes and shapes, characterised by its soft and refined lines. The high-quality porcelain washbasins in the Glam collection have thin but highly resistant rims, the result of our technical know-how and continual investments in research and development of innovative and visually stunning furnishing solutions. The collection has a clean and overarching design that can be incorporated into various domestic and professional settings. The sanitary ware in the Teorema 2.0 collection is distinguished by its generous dimensions and its thin core. The collection is formed of suspended and surface-standing washbasins in various formats, bidets and WCs, and has been created to satisfy the furnishing needs of a contemporary lifestyle by combining style and functionality.
